Anyone ever paint these rims black?

Well i didn't get the rim and tire package that i was hoping for over the holidays. So i was thinking about doing t he next best thing. Was wondering if anyone painted/ coated these rims black? I've only seen them done to the 4x4 edge rims and they look hella good. Post pics please!

Powdercoat is a GOOD idea if you have some spare $$. I found a local guy here in Central Ohio that will sandblast & Powdercoat my aluminum wheel for $150 total! I can send ya some pics he sent me as examples...(I will be doing this soon-tire of trying to keep my wheels shining through all seasons)...

Later!

I don't know? Not trying to burst your bubble but it makes them look like spare tire rims. Like someone stoled your OEM rims and you only had some spares to put back on it. Black on black goes good like the rims on a Regal Grand National.
