    ..Left the center and the outside edge unpainted on each wheel. I like 'em, but what do you think?..

    Nice dude, its a unique spin on these rims. I was thinking of painting my solid black but after seeing urs I've changed my mind. Got any pics with the center caps on?

    Never did like the look of center caps on these allow wheels, even before they were painted. So they were removed a long time ago and I'm not even sure I still have them.

    I hear ya, what type paint and color did you use, I think they look sweet w/o the caps anyways! Did you just tape the lip and center off?

    Bought $2 a can flat black and glossy black from Home Depot. Used a high pressure washer on the wheels to get them clean, then taped off the lip and center of each wheel before spraying. Started with the flat black, two coats. When that dried finished with two coats of gloss black. The Arizona sun baked the finish on those clean wheels hard as nails. Since then I've pressure washed them a couple of times without any problem.

    Thanks Will. Looks like everyone who has commented so far likes the look. Of course so do I, and that's what counts!!
