Default other options to painting rims?

instead of me painting my alloy rims black (stock 2003 ranger FX4), whats the best deal going out there for steel rims-black?

my tires are 265/75/R16---that means i have 16" rims right?

any clue who has the best deal for generic/no name brand steel wheels? websites or business names appreciated!!

also, what is the market for used alloy rims? any idea what i can expect to sell them for?

thanks!!!!

$7 bucks for a can of engine paint, $3 for a roll of tape, $1-2 for some red scotchbrite pads, some elbow grease (sanding/preping) and a half day of labor.. dnt see how you can beat that?

Discount tire america. I'm about to buy a set of black steels from them. $55 per rim.
