Well I had some brake work done over spring break and while the wheels were off of my truck i decided to take them home and paint them. i am very happy with how they have turned out. I washed them pretty good, scuffed them up with a scotchbrite pad, one coat of primer, and a healthy coat of black paint. All in all the materials cost me around $15 bucks and took me a full day with waiting on stuff to dry. Just thought i'd post some pictures to see what ya'll thought. Let me know if you have any questions.

I just used black semi-gloss paint i picked up at advanced auto. I think it was $3.00 a can iirc, and i used two cans for the wheels and center caps.

im going to have my rockers and bumpers linex'd and paint the grill black, and then use the vht niteshades on the healights like i did my cab lights and 3rd brake light. Thanks for the compliments guys. For prep, i cleaned them really good with soap and water, scuffed them up with a scotch brite pad and then used self etching primer and then painted them. If anyone has anymore questions just let me know.
