Looks awesome. I have always been a fan of those wheels when they are painted black.

Thank you. I bought 3 cans of duplicolor engine paint in gloss black and one can of duplicolor white primer. I pulled the wheels from the truck, took some emery cloth to em to rough them up, washed them, taped of the tires and went to town. The whole thing took me 2 hours and had a total cost of $22.73

Let me know how this holds up over time, this might be a better solution for me. I mean dropping $1200 on wheels and tires (what I was planning on doing) isn't really feasible for a college student like me.

I understand. My rims were already in bad shape, there 9 years old and alot of trails, mud, and rock later. If you use the right paint and do the right prep work they will hold for quit a long time. This truck just as my last one the rims came off of will see alot of trails and will get beat to hell and Im confident the paint will hold

They should come powdercoated black from the factory.

The rims looks a billion times better.

man i love 33x10.5. I wish i could go back in time and get another set. Instead I had to be an idiot and get PROCOMPs in 33x12.5...dumb.

Those tires are awesome. truck looks great and functional.
