Plasti-dip, nice and cheap way of non-permanently making stuff look nice. Paint is ok...powdercoating is better, but lets be honest, when it comes to wanting black rims, why pay $350 or more to powdercoat your regular rims, when u can get nicer cheaper black rims for less..

Cragar Black Soft 8's FTMFW
$69-79 each.

Ahh...for the whole thing? Plastidip costs like $7 a can here...I think. All I know is that its more expensive than spray paint.

yeah more expensive than the $1.99 walmart cans...if u want the good spray paint, its about $7 a can or more...at least around here...and of course, remember, with paint, you should really PRIMER first, so now your looking at even more costs.

If I wanted my rims black I would probably paint them. Mu plastidip didn't do to good. And my rims aren't worth the money to powdercoat.

I check Craigslist/bisman for rims and tires daily.

I primered my wheels and I used Rustoleum paint which is about $4/can. They turned out great and I definitely wouldn't want to go back with those wheels. I'd change wheels if I wanted something different.
