    image.jpg image.jpgSo my Texas Edition came with these Ultra Grinder Gloss Black/ Machined 20" wheels. So two questions. #1- Do you think it would look good with black rims? Keep in mind that I eventually plan to color match the bumpers and grill surrounding and either remove/black out badges.
    #2- What is the best way to paint rims?
    Powder coated? Painted? Something that will hold up. Thanks in advance.

    If your looking for longevity, I think powdercoating will hold up better, longer. A rims environment can be a tough one speacially if you live somewhere that gets snow and ice. Most states use salt during the winter to combat those conditions, and it can be tough on any surface! By the way thats a nice looking truck.
