Paint stock rims?

Just got my 2012 Wrangler Sport, Black in color. Ordered my black Jeep emblem today but was wandering, can you or has anyone ever painted a set of stock rims. Want them black. Any help or info appreciated.

Peeps do it all the time. You can do em yourself with a rattle can, Plasti-Dip, or bedliner. Or you can pay to get em powdercoated. You're only limited by your imagination.

Lotsa good links, tips, photos – plus opinions on pros/cons of each method – in the links below:

If you like the blacked out look, plastidip works well on everything (emblem, trail rated badge ect...) do a quick search there's lots of good info on here. And it is as easy as it sounds.
Cheers
