Black Rims (V Line)

Does anybody here have black V-Line rims?
I want black rims and was thinking about getting them at Tire Kingdom.

^^ I would agree. I wouldn't drop lots of $$ on wheels especially if you are hitting the trails a lot. I learned the hard way

pro comp wheels are good.. black with chrome caps and lugs.. you can also go with rebel racing, complete black p/c rims with black centers, lugs are chrome but rims are about $99 each.. pro comps look almost the same and are much cheaper.. almost half.

The wheels he is looking at (V-Line) are aluminum and painted black. If you want the look with a stronger wheel, get them.

The rims I ended up buying are pretty much like that except they're by Unique.

Do you have a pic of your painted stockers? Was thinking of painting mine, just curious of outcome/durability.
Thanks

After a few months there were a couple of spots that were chipping.
Before painting them I scuffed them up pretty good with a sanding block, then primed them, then painted them. In hindsight I should have went with my original plan of using rattle can bedliner. That stuff is hard to come off.

I agree... probably would've held up better.


Your new set-up looks nice btw.
