Anyone paint their Stock Alcoas

Just like the title says, anyone ever paint their alcoas black? I have a set off my truck, and they have some scratches in them that wont buff out. I was thinking about spray painting them just for the heck of it, and putting my old 32s" back on them. Anyone ever done this? And any recomendations?

Great idea, but they really are scratched up pretty bad. Id hate to sell them to someone like they are.

Yeah just sell them, they are too narrow and have crappy offset so they look ugly but other people are willing to pay out the *** for them. Sell them and buy some Procomp 8069's or something. For me offset is everything, and wheels make the vehicle.

Oh yes I definately agree. Thats kinda the reason I took them off. lol Just figured I'd have a little fun with them, but like I said, if someone wants them, they can get them...

I always wondered this too, I was just waiting for someone else to do it to theirs first.

Glass beading works good to strip aluminum.
