Hey guys. just thought I'd post a pic of my "new" black wheels. I plan on getting new wheels and tires here soon, so I thought that I would "rattle can" the stock silver steel wheels just to see what it looked like. I like it, think it looks a lot tougher, what do ya'll think?

I gave it the "Krylon touch", I sanded em off first, and taped of the tires. Yeah, with the money I saved I wanna get a body lift and some new meats, I'm gonna pick up a cone air filter some time this week, everybody says its a big difference.

I will post some pictures on Monday of the Hummer wheels I had professionally painted black, they turned out great. My brother works for a company that repairs damaged wheels, so I had him take a set and base coat them and then put a clear on just to see how they looked. I am picking up some new wheels for my truck on Tuesday, and we are going to try and put a black chrome on them. Hopefully they turn out good.

a cone airfilter in a open or gutted box is a great upgrade

I did the ol' Krylon paintjob on my wheels, as well. I'm not sure it would look right without the chrome center caps and trim rings.

Thank ye. Would look better had I gotten a chance to clean stuff up first. Weather here has been nasty lately.

I did that with my old 96 Chevy... except I kept the chrome wheel linings and chrome lug caps. I liked it a lot better than the silver.

The pictured gooseneck is a 2005 Load Trail Load Max 34' tri-axle, 21,000#. Brakes on all 3 axles, toolboxes in front, slide in ramps, 8" channel frame, drop down jacks in rear, 2 10,000# spring loaded jacks in front, etc. It pulls very nice, barely know it's back there, much better than my 20' deck-over equipment trailer.

black wheels

I think it looks great! I'm gonna throw 6 inches on my hd and put the moto metal 951 blacks. We are relocating to Alaska and I think it would be alot less upkeep than chrome or billet. Looks good though.

I think the black rims on a white truck are sharp. and the spray paint can always be touched up.
