They came out really good man! Nice work! I dont know how the long term durability will be but they should last you until you get some new ones

I had a buddy that painted his alluminum wheels, stuff flaked off in no time. Looked terrible after just a couple of weeks. Not sure what he used or how he prepped them though.

if you take that banks sticker off, you will gain 20 HP. hahaha....no, just kidding man.

I do like the black wheels look. I was looking to do something like that. but I would have to powdercoat since I have dually, and it would be really hard to recoat them all the time. I did paint my F150 wheels black, and I had to repaint them all the time....it was not worth it IMO.
