Looks good. I wanted to do that to my canyons, but they are too messed up.

I popped them out and taped moved with masking tape and used a xacto knife to trim around the letters you could use a razor blade just bigger than the knife

I prefer the Ravines over the Canyons, but those are some Canyons I'd love to have on my rig! Well done!

I cleaned with acetone then put down two coats of self etching primer and then just flat black automotive enamel. The silver parts I just masked off before spraying

These look good! Can't wait to see these on your rig! I am tying to decide if I want to get my mint condition canyons powder coated. I can't seem to find any aftermarket 15x8 wheels that I really care for. Just really wish the canyons had 4-4.50 backspace so I wouldn't need spacers for my 35's to stay off my control arms.
