    I can't believe anyone would even think of painting factory alloys. They (and yer truck) look great as is...if you want black just go get some mini spares for all four corners - that's what black wheels make trucks look like anyway!:rolleyes: Honestly, if you were to get a date with a supermodel, are ya gonna dump a bucket of shet on her before you go out?!:eek:

    AGREED^. Looks great! I'd say run it and if ur ready for a change in a year or two then pull the trigger on new wheels. The black wheel look is about to run its course.
