Haven't looked into it that much yet. I know they are usually $200 for all 49. Wouldn't mind finding some used.

Not really our specialty.

You should leave em black. Then when the tire place ruins it freak out and tell them it cost you hundreds to get done. Maybe get some free tires.
I HOPE you aren't serious.

Oh I know. I have been on the fence about painting them black for a few months but was nervous about taking the permanent route. I plan on getting 32's in a couple months. Now that I know I like them black I will strip the Plasti Dip off before getting the new tires on and have the weights put on the back of the wheels. I will then permanantly spray them black and throw some spacers on.

I see. I just considered them to be Currie since that's the description on the website. I just fixed my shocks so I'll try to get them offroad soon.

PS... How's that work?

Meh...I saw a picture somewhere where someone left the spokes the silver color and painted the inserts black. Wasn't my favorite. I would be interested in seeing the spokes black and leaving the inserts the dark gray color. Would be a lot of work taping off and I wouldn't go that route with the Plasti Dip with all those edges...one edge gets snagged or loose and away goes all your hard work. Would look good though!

I did the passenger side first so I spend a little more time on them allowing more dry time between coats. I probably did 4-5 coats over a couple of hours. It was taking a lot longer than I expected to dry because we had kind of high humidity today.

I did the driver side a little quicker. Did a nice light coat and let it dry, second coat. Didn't wait as long and applied a good third coat and did a final nice thick forth coat. It was getting dark and they were a tad tacky still. I took my time putting them back on the Jeep and never touched the wheels even when putting the lugs in and tightening them.

Got off track....4-5 coats

All the over spray on the tires just peeled right off when I was done

Figured this would hold me over till I get new rims and tires this spring (fingers crossed). I told my wife what I was doing this morning before she left for work and she said "I thought you said you were going to rake the front yard today." GUILTY! So in between coats and drying time, I raked the front yard

Granman Looks damn good, guess I'll be doing the same thing to mine now before I decide to get new ones.
