Good. had to touch up one wheel after a rock found its way in the path of the wheel. Took about 10 minutes to fix it. Took it off and repainted that part and put it back on. It is holding up well and if they get dirty, the dirt where I live is very fine, they do tend to "stain" the wheels. A pressure-washer or high pressure car wash hose will take care of the problem. I highly recommend.

SoJersey I agree, spray on bed liner. I also thought about powder coating but didn't think at that price it wasn't worth doing.

Car123 Getting a couple cans of bed liner sounds a lot better anyway. looks the same at a cheaper price.

Irongrave thats BS in my book as most stock wheels are powder coated these days and you don't really get the metal that hot during the process.

Car123 I heard that the powder coating can also weaken the rim is that true?

Irongrave paint cost about $15.00 for 2 cans of spray paint. powdercoating cost about 75-100 a wheel depending on the shop,then $20 x2 for dismounting then remounting your tires.

just paint your wheels
