    If you paint em' black, you should darked out the taillights and headlights, give it the dark kinda look. It'll go with the window tint too.

    Quit posting these little mods... I don't have enough time to do 'em :D

    I'm still debating having my flares and grille shell paintmatched. The wheels wouldn't take that long to do - scuff, clean, prime and a few coats of paint. Thinking a flat or semi would look cool.

    Hell Yea. Make sure you sand really good!!! Most important part. Oh, and if you drip, don't rub or dab. It only makes it worst. Instead, just sand that part down once dried and re-paint. If only I could re-do. :(

    way back when i painted mine (which were those same wheels) i didnt sand...i just cleaned and dried really well...then sprayed 2 coats per wheel...they held up for 2 or 2.5 years of wheeling and lack of care :)

    i used the rustoleum hammered black...its a bit more of a gray...but it "fit" better i thought with the tires...because i knew i wasnt going to be putting tire dressing or anything like that...so they were gonna be a faded black too...
