ordered new wheels today

I'm quiting my job at belle tire in the next couple of weeks so I ordered wheels today while I still got them at cost. They're nothing fancy just a steel wheel. I like the way black wheels look with the stock center caps. I got these for 23.00 per wheel which is cheaper than you could get from a junk yard and these are brand new. 15x8 with a -19 offset. These are white, but the black ones were twice as much so I'm just gonna spray them black. I figure they'll get scratched while wheeling anyway.

I'm not too worried about them rusting. I'll definately post pics once I get them on, but I need to save my pennies and get tires first because I dont own a single 15" tire other than my stock spare which is basically an over-sized paperweight now.

Yeah easy enough to make them black! Good thinking jumping on that store discount before leaving. Hey guest do you use that coating setup, if so what do you set the powder with. I have one and an oven, but the oven is unusable for the moment.
