well i finally decided to bite the bullet, I've been wanting black rims for quite some time and my rear rims looked like hell after 200k miles of rocks bouncing around inside them so i sanded them down and painted them all black, removed the nerf bars and painted my mirror covers, im currently waiting on the paint to dry on the wheels so we should have pics shortly, if i like it the wheels will be going in for an acid dip and probably send them off to have them anodized

Looks great, I would go with a less glossy finish on the wheels. The tires are really difficult to keep looking black on all different road surfaces, and I think a finish that isnt glossy black will match tires better, and be less obvious when the tires are dirty.

Kind of more of a subtle look.

Either way it looks great man, keep goin

I agree with Jeremy a little, but I think if the tires were clean/shined, it'd look awesome. Good job!
It would look good no doubt... im just sayin not everyone carries tire shine with em 24/7

btw i cannot believe you agree with a new englander...

Like the NFAB steps? or more of a nerf bar style?

Great work bud! Kinda agree with the others on the whole shine issue. With clean tires it would look badass though.

whats the best stuff to use for tire shine, that armor all crap lasts like 5 min here with the dust, i want somthin that will shine them up and leave them glossy but isn't oily and leaves nasty residue, would white leter tires help kill some of the black?

Down here, there's a company I use to work for, they make their own detailing products. Their tires shine was almost like a clearcoat, it dries into a high gloss and doesnt catch dust much at all. It's nice.
