    Hey guys,

    Im going to paint the stock wheels black when I get back from Afghanistan in a few weeks. What paint and what finish do you guys recommend? I dont want it too dull, I kinda like a little shine to it. Feel free to post pics if you have experience. Thanks guys!!!

    Rustoleum Hammered Black.

    Did this over the summer and I have some touch up to do to them from hunting season. Sanded some of the paint off of the edge of the rims going through soupy sand.
