i say if you want to paint them black, go all black. Otherwise itll look like you have a ranger with a police package lol

all black rims + mudflap delete = WIN

Agreed, if you are going black go all black. Have you considered powdercoating instead? Paint with Duplicolor or an equivalent product is quick and easy but if you don't do the appropriate prep work, the end result won't be all that great. A black powdercoat would be much more durable.
