Talking paint or not 2 paint??????

I have the stock 4x4 rims for a 2000. i like look of the design. is what i would like to know if it possible to paint them and if so what kinda paint should be used.... i would like to paint them black and keep the chrome lug cover but i dont want to use a paint that wont work or look runny or to shiny. i was thinking of using bed liner spray because to me that would hold up for a long time.

Default Re: paint or not paint??????

If going to black and you want it to last a long time then you would be better off haveing them powder coated. Most places will powder coat for cheap. A local place here told me 50 bucks to powder coat the dixon brother racing front tube bumper. But thats for steel, now that I think about it im not sure if they can powder coat alum. rims, but look into it
