Black rims


I was thinking about painting my rims black and I know that a lot of you are good with photoshop so I was wondering if you could show me what it would look like first.

I only have it, cause I bought a digital camera. But I never have the patience to sit down, and figure out, how it works.......

you can get 4 steelies for like 140 bucks. and theyd look a lot better. Im sure yours would look damn good but you can beat mass manufacturing

I've thought about that too, but I'm going to be getting these when I get my lift but with the red locks.

Yeah there was... Where do you think I got the idea? But I liked his rims better for doing what he did, mine can't really look like his, so solid black would be best.

Thanks! I was wondering how it would look with those stupid stickers gone. Should I use a satin or gloss black?

I have the Allied Simu-locks and like them. Though they were not my first choice as I would not pay for the bead lock 'look' only I scored them cheap on craigslist. For 5 wheels and 33" BFG MTs with 40% tread I paid $100. I sold 4 tires and my old wheels for $170

Nice work AzTj. Though you can hardly tell the difference between mine and yours... Yours does look a little more professional

I'd use a satin. If the gloss isn't done right, it will look crumby.
