    It'd look alot better for sure, just take your time and do it right if you plan on keeping these wheels.

    I've seen alot of pics of painted steel wheels but have'nt seen any like these painted black yet. I know they will look good. Maybe some one can post pics if they did something similar.

    Black is a total PITA to keep clean and eveyone is doing it. Kinda played out IMO so with my second set of wheels I went a different route. $0.02

    They also show every scratch (my street wheels/tires)
