Black or Aluminum Color ?

Going with a 16" Slotted Alum Wheel, 285 x 75 x 16 Tires either BFG KM2 or MT MTZs.

Trying to decide if I should get the Rims Painted Black ?

El Natural, the way I got them:

or

Photoshopped Black: The centers and Lugs will be black also.

Your opinions please, should I paint teh rims ?

Also, are there other coating to use on a rim other than the paint or power-coating; what about Teflon Coating, where or how ?

Thanks,

Slots are awesome! What color is your truck. I like the natural aluminum look, but it doesn't work on all vehicles.

I think the aluminum look is good but I like the new black look too.

I am going to leave them aluminum for the first run, if I don't like them on the truck I will pull and paint or look for a coating company.

thanks for the input
