Default Wheel color request

Hey. I've been looking into painting my stock ford rims, which are very worn and look terrible. All I'm asking for is a simple photoshop job, but instead of like dark black, if it could be like as realistic as possible. That's pretty much the reason why I can't do it myself.. I don't have the patience for MS Paint, and no skills to use photoshop.
Oh yeah, and rather than me making a new thread.. what would be the best way to get these "professionally" painted? I was told to get them sandblasted, but don't know where to look.

Thanks!

EDIT: Oh yeah... picture.

You could do it yourself very easily. A buddy and I painted his wheels black last week. We used a scotchbrite drill wheel, and spray paint made for wheels. He wanted a dull look so we didn't clear or buff them.

Okay, will have to look into that. Just searched on google and it seems pretty straight forward to do it myself. Would still like to see how it would look before I dive in.

they will look like something like this:


one a side note, if you have extra cash powder-coating is the way to go, other wise just spray them yourself.

I really like how that looks, thanks. And yeah, I'd rather just paint them myself than pay a chunk of cash to get them powder-coated.. I've driven around with these wheels for a year and a half... so really anything is better and it saves me money to do other stuff like buy new lights and such.
