    This is how bored I was tonight. Those are trash bags simulating a black wheel. I am slightly embarrassed, but it gave me a good idea of what it would look like.

    Whatcha think?

    What are they right now? Chrome? Silver? No shame man. If they are chrome I say powdercoat. If they are silver or a brushed aluminum look I say leave it.

    I say if you want black wheels, buy new ones and sell those unless you absolutely love your wheels...powder coating will run you at least 50bux per wheel

    We send loads of stuff to powder-coating, so I can sneak them in. But, I think i am just going to leave it as is.

    Thanks guys!

    Although they do look good black, I like them better with the polished finish. Gives it more of a "real" truck look...

    Do the black dude!! I think it looks bad ass. I have that set up on mine (magnetic gray and the new black "beadlock" toyota wheels).

    Im guessing you wanna go with a bad ass black and dark look right?! I think it looks siiiiick. Just my 2 cents tho....

    if you can get free powder, i would roll with gun metal grey rather than black... It would look pretty badass on your ride and different from most.

    Being that you where the reason that i panted my bead locks black and took my center caps off i say leave them. I like our rims just how you have them or i would not have done the same. All black is over rated i think...

    leave them they way they are, those look good with the beadlocls, plus the inner part goes better with ur bumper,grille, emblems, and it might ruin those wheels for what they are.......

    maybe if u had some different wheels, but those look good the way they are.......


    keep em
