I was going to paint my stock ones to see how black wheels would look on my truck. haven't done it yet but with todays weather i'm thinking about doing it. The most important part is prep if you are painting them.

My aftermarket polished wheels are headed in for black powdercoating at the end of next week. My bumpers and brushguard are in being done now. And for the valance and grill, they are being painted to match. Sand down, 2 coats bulldog, 2 coats epoxy sealer/primer, 2 coats urethane primer, and single stage matte black paint. Oh, and the Harley headlights will be here on Wednesday.

These are the wheels that i have now. i Was thinking of painting/powdercoating the spokes and leave the lip chrome. I dont know what it takes to prep chrome is my only thing. I suppose self etch primer would probably do it but who knows. I dont want them all black. Can a powdercoat place tape an edge off?

Rob snowing a blowin today up there too?

You cant powder coat those wheels if you want to leave the lip chrome. Chrome wont handle the heat of the oven and will peel off...

I talked to a local powdercoat place and they will blast and powder coat them for 80-115 per wheel. I have a fifth spare... which is part of the reason i want tjust make these ones black and i cant sell them toanyone locally, without loosing my arse on them, Another reason is they dont make these wheels in black... so i'll pretty much be the only one with this style wheel in black. So i would loose more money if i sold these wheels, bought another style that i wanted i would be out way more than 100 bucks a wheel and i would have to still buy i fifth spare... I think im just going to do them all black no chrome lip and let the center cap and the lugs be the chrome ofset. My truck doesnt have any chrome on it really so it will be blacked out for the most part.
