Painted Factory wheels

whos done it?


more importantly...whos got pics!?



I'm considering painting my 17's black to avoid dropping $ on new rims, or possibly finding factory 5 spoke 20s to paint black for the truck in my efforts to eliminate all the chrome on my rig

(if anyone wants to trade their 20s for 17s holler )

Thanks fellas

What do you mean?

Each truck has diff size and style based on its package (fx4 xlt lariat king ranch etc) and diff years also have diff size/styles.

My 05 lariat fx4 has 17" chrome 5 spokes.


Not sure what you're asking me

you can use a metric tire size calculator to figure out what size and width 35s you want. your rim size is the last digits listed on the tire size on the sidewall

ex- 315/70/r17

"r17"= radial on 17" rims
