17" Stock textured black wheels for winter tires

I salvaged my old 17" rims. They were powdercoated 3 years ago but got ruined and stained with de-greaser. The option to re-coat was too expensive so I scuffed them and painted with duplicolor bedliner (about 5 coats). Couldn't be happier and it's a lot stronger than plastidip. I wanted a textured flat black and I'm very happy with the results. Just throwing that option out there for those looking for black rims.

I'm planning to pair with Cooper Weather-Master WSC (will not stud). I would appreciate if anyone has any feedback on that tire.

I'll find out soon but it's really easy to retouch. I was reading on another truck brand forum people going through the whole winter with it with no issues. Thanks.
