Painting stock 01 dually rims

Ok so i dont really like the stock aluminum rims i have a white lariat. So i want balck rims..... with out spending $1000. Anyone have any pictures of stock rims they coated/painted black. thinking of leaving a little of the aluminum to show thru to make it look similar to black and chrome rims. What do you guys think? Thanks.

While removing all of the clear coat isn't necessary, it definitely needs to be scuffed good. A red Scotch Brite pad or 320G should do it. Clean really good, alcohol helps, tack rag wipe if you're really anal. Then spray away.

I'd remove the tires from the truck to limit masking. Mark the tire where any weights are, prep/paint/replace weights.

so after i scuff them up think i could just use regular spray paint? and i remebered i have a junk rim of a dually so im going to test on that. Think i should go just plain black or tape some of the aluminum off to have a black and chromish look

Cheap paint, cheap finish. It may look good initially, but most lacquer enamels don't last long. I'd go to a paint and supply store (not the paint section of Wally World or a hardware store) and ask them for a durable spray paint.

Personally, I'd break out the paint gun and some polyurethane.

I dont know about aluminum but Rustoleum textured finish (has a picture of patio furniture on it) is a good value, it adheres much better than regular rustoleum, I used it on a lot of wheels sanding with 220 grit, it lasts pretty well.

If the oems are acorn and coarse thread they will. 14x1.5 is for fine thread studs.
