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!

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
There are very few vehicles that can be defined as "made for offroad". Unfortunately, the Wrangler can definitely be defined as "made for offroad" by its inability to handle well on road
