    Hi everyone, so I'm thinking about blacking my rims out. I see alot of trucks on here with stock black rims, so if anyone has time to point me in the right direction I am totally grateful. Thanks! BTW I am on a budget:)

    me and a buddy sanded for about 2 hours then painted and primed for 4. i would not do it again cus it sucked but it cost me about $20 for everything. Im gunna have to sand alittle bit more in some little spots and paint them again but this time much thicker cus u can kinda see the green primer coming through but they just look dirty (well i guess they r) if u have any questions on what i did feel free to pm me.

    Powdercoating is done by a shop that is equipped for that process. people on this site have plasti-dipped their wheels with success. you just have to search around a bit.

    Hey you guys can use or do what you want, just seems like all I read anymore is the most expensive alternatives going like powdercoating ,etc; which is fine I guess,or guys saying "take it to Joes custom rim detailing " or whatever, theres no outside the box thinking anymore cause guys think unless its the most expensive, name brand going anything less is just shit, Anyway I'm just ranting a little, I applaud you guys for doing it yourselves.

    Now, time wise it took about half a day to do it complete, all 4 tires off truck, wash & scrub them down good (both sides). I wouldn't use any sand paper or other really abrasive material, after washing & drying them, hit the front of wheels with a wire wheel on a drill, you just want to thoroughly scuff them up (so the paint grabs better & more evenly)then re wipe & dry before painting..

    Pricey spray paint or the $1.99 a can cheap shit like I use is your choice, I go cheap cause I wheel quite a bit & its easy to lightly hit any scuffs I get along the way, if you use something like rustoleum or other heavy duty Enamel, know what your doing cause that shit is unforgivable if not applied correctly & takes forever to cure & harden up... good luck whichever way you go...
