    Im looking at blacking the stock rims (no, I cant afford to get new rims) and was thinking about a two tone look.

    Option A: Black out the entire weel
    Option B: Black out only the outer rim (Keep nuts and inner hub silver)
    Option C: Black out the inner hub (and maybe the nuts)
    Option D: Leave them stock

    Anyone ever done this and have pics to show? What do you guys think?

    That style of factory wheel would look good all black, including lug nuts. Go with the all black wheel first, then paint the lugs if chrome lugs doesn't look good with the black wheel.

    It is very easy to paint them. It will probably take you all afternoon to finish it depending on how many coats you do. I did everything on mine, lugs, center caps, and wheels. It looks a lot better.

    I might go for the outer rim only, see how it looks, and do the inner hub if needed... Anyone with 1st gen pics?

    Are those stock rims? They look nice, but it kind of fits into your color sceme. Im not sure how black rims will look on my truck, but when I get back to the states, Ill have to try some photoshoping.

    If you do it... do it right... Get the bead broke on the wheels, if you can swing it, get the tires pulled all the way off.

    I would paint them Satin Black. but I would also leave the lug nuts chrome.

    No need to pull the tires - I figure if you are painting wheels on the cheap, you are doing it on the cheap. ;)

    I use index cards stuck in the bead, a circle of them nicely masks the tire, while still allowing you to paint all the visible lip of the tire. Just pull the wheels, clean the wheels with soap and water and allow to dry. Scuff up the wheels with a scotchbrite pad, mask with the index cards, and spray. The duplicolor wheel paint does a good job - I've found it to be surprisingly tough for a rattle can job.

    Not enough.
    Flat black and leave the lugs chrome and take the center cap off, imo it gives some depth to the rim. I'll pay a pic of mine without caps later

    To me there is a difference between doing something cheap (cost effective) and half assing it.

    I painted my wheels inside and out... Not only is is easier to prep and paint a bare rim, but I just think it comes out nicer... There is NO chance of original color showing thru. Everyone has their own thoughts. I would atleast break the bead on the front side. Honestly, if your wheels are rough enough to be thinking about blacking out... you can break your bead pretty easy and cheap yourself...

    I personally use a tire machine at a local friends auto repair shop. And for motorcycles I have my own No-Mar machine... but these methods DO work...
