Re: 20" Wheels painted black

Thanks

Re: 20" Wheels painted black

Black IMO is played out. It was cool a few years back but I honestly think they look best left as is. The only time I like darker wheels are when certain cars come that way stock such as the competition gray wheels on Corvettes as an example. They arent anywhere near black, but are a very very dark silver/gunmetal. The OEM Overland painted wheels are actually a slightly darker silver compared to a normal silver painted wheel.
My vote goes to just leave them as is.

Would getting someone to paint / powder coat be cheaper? I sure hope so.

Black chrome powder coat doesn't really look the same, the multistage powder coat is somewhat close but more expensive ($600+ with prep).
