Hit them with really hard preasure washer or mud. Then tell me how the hold up. Paint doesnt like to stick to alum. If it works I might do it.

They really look good on your truck. Normally I don't dig black wheels but those rock on your truck, color combo is great.

As long as you scuffed the aluminum and used HIGH BUILD primer before you layed the colour down, it should stick pretty good.

You are going to get rock chips here and there, but then not even your factory paint job is immune from that.
