    May I be able to see some pictures of stock 15x8 wheels that have been painted black and maybe if possible have the chrome rings and chrome caps on them.

    Im contemplating doing this and it would save me about $350



    I would be either:
    getting them powdercoated ( only save me about $150)
    after prepping them painting them and then clear coat
    paint with por-15
    paint with john deere black I hear its pretty tuff

    I had my rallys powder coated black on my '79 K10, and I stripped the gray paint off the centercaps to make them allover chrome. With my trim rings on along with my QR Buckshots, they looked great. I did, however, remove my trim rings before I went muddin'.
