Black Wheels

Just looking to make my wheels look a bit better. I have stock steel wheels and cannot afford new ones for a while. Has anyone attemped to prime and paint their own??? I know I can spend the time to do it right. Im just curious what they will look like after a year or two?

I took my Stock 17" Moab Wheels, to a Wheel Company in town. They highly recommended Powdercoating over Painting. Powdercoating, as I was told, would stand up better than Paint, and they would also be easier to clean.

Here are some Before and After Pics of my Stock Wheels:

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

You are gonna spend atleast 100 a wheel to have them powder coated, you can get cragar soft 8s for less than that a wheel
