Black Powdercoat OEM steel wheels on an '03?

My truck is an '03 XL with the decor package, so it has the grey steel wheels with the grey plastic wheel covers. I'm thinking of ditching the covers and just getting the wheels powdercoated black. Anyone ever do this or think it would look nice? Please post pics if you have any.

I want to do the same thing-plus my wheels are rusting behind the plastic, it's time to do it I guess. I'd like to see a picture too if anyone else has done it

I checked into the cost of having them powder coated. A place about 5 miles from my house will do them for about $150.00. Problem is I don't have a spare set of wheels and tires to run around with for a few days.

There's always plasti-dip. About $25 bucks in supplies and a few hours of your time. I did it to mine a few months ago and they look awesome.

How is the Plasti-Coat holding up? I've used them on various Jeep parts, but nothing that I'd want to power wash or anything. Think it would hold up to something like that?

They're doing very well. I've had them on for a few months now, and I really like the look. The only thing that messed them up a bit was that i hit a ditch and scraped a little off of the bead, but other than that they still look like they did day 1...plus some brake dust on the fronts.

I had put some pics up on a previous post, I'll see if i can find them.

lets see if this works:
What did you do to your 6.0 today?

TruckNorris, I'm liking the way those wheels look. Are those 285's?

They are, only 16's too. Not my ideal choice, but the tires were brand new on the truck when I bought it.

The entire process took a saturdays' worth of time, (I could only do 2 wheels at a time, but if you have 4 jack stands you could significantly decrease that), and about $25-$30 bucks in supplies (plasti-dip and painters tape).

A bunch of the other guys at my fire house have done their wheels as well after seeing mine. They've also done vehicle badges too.

I like it. It absolutely changes the look of your vehicle, and for next to nothing as well.
