jjseel I like the black steelies! I have alloys, cuz I got a smokin' deal. If I could afford it, though, I would buy the black, Teflon coated ones - SWEET! Alloys are better IMHO, but I love the understated look. (white letters in!)

b ut then I found these...

Pro Comp Series 8179 Black Powder Coat with Diamond Cut Lip Wheel 15" x 8"

$103 each

those are the exact wheels i just got... i got them for cheaper than that through a seller on ebay called sports trailerz i think... i cant remember, ill look for the info. anyway, i got those wheels in 15x8's, 5 of them for 475 shipped... thats damn good if you ask me for some alloy wheels, but then i paid an extra like 35 or 40 for the lug nuts, but i like them. like them a lot

AzTJ IT would be a custom thing. But ProComp has some wheels that look a little like the CLassic 2's that are black.
08-09-2007 02:23 PM
2002Apex Do black m/t classic 2's exist or are they a custom thing. Ive seen them before on a vehicle but i didnt know if they powder coated them or what?
