    I know various manufacturers make black wheels, but all the one's I've seen have the red or blue stripes around the outside. Does anyone make black wheels without the stripes? I'm looking to get some 15x10's.

    why not just buy them and use some touch up paint or strip off the red, it's just pinstriping.

    I just bought the white ones (cheeper) and took off the striping. It's just a sticker, then painted them black.

    I bought Bart Monster truck wheels they called them. All black no stripes. Double thick centers. Balanced out pretty well. I haven't seen them in any ads lately. I think another company makes them now or they changed the name or something.

    I just bought some "rock crawlers" from desert rat. They are made by US Wheel and are also called "Daytona" by US Wheel.

    The red stripe makes them look like something that should go on a tractor. I plan to tape off the rim just below the face (at the first dip) and repaint right over the red stripe. (it is painted and not a decal on these).

    This will be much easier that trying to rub out the red stripe w/out rubbing out the black underneath.

    Will post pix when done.
