I dont know how much of a PITA it would be to tap and paint it.
Give me an idea on what you think.

It would be a huge pain in the ***, if you want the honest truth. But, the end result would be bad ***, IMO.

My picks in that order. I've been trying to figure out if I want to do this to my truck too. I'd like to see all those wheels with the gun metal gray instead of black. You know, just to give you more to think about.
