im with eric, as long as you can get a bonding agent to help make the paint stick to chrome, and go with maybe no center cap? or chrome, but get some nice shiny chrome lug nuts. that would look good. im gonna be on black rims with shiny new lug nuts!

yeah... i think if i dont paint them i might have them re-chromed... i know of a shop here in town... they helped me attach my headache rack to the truck... i think theyll give me a good deal. Im gonna try to get rid of most if not all the chrome on my truck. Im kinda tired of taking care of it all.

Here are my buddies rims on his Jeep. We painted them flat black last spring. Still holding up good.
After paint prep.


Finished product.



Leaving the center caps alone looks good IMO. Oh yea, don't mind the hookah in the last pic, both of us got addicted to them while in Iraq.

Chrome rims going black I'd be looking at DupliColor Shadow Black giving a black chrome which I think would look pretty good.
