That should look really good! What kind of paint are you using, and are you doing multiple coats? Look forward to the pics.

X2 I want to see them on the jeep. I have the limited chrome wheels on mine. I keep trying to imagine black wheels on mine.

That looks really good! I think you should put the lamp tint on your turn signals and tail lights. That would look really good with the black grill!

How are the painted wheels holding up? Did you clear coat them? Did you use any primer to promote adhesion? I love the look, My first thought is durability and the second thought is brake dust collecting in the pores of the paint.
For others interested in this project... bodyshops have access to two component primers, catalized topcoats and matte clearcoats that I believe would offer better paint performance than a single componet aersol can. I realize this is a DIY project and my hats off to you for doing this. Looks great! I just wanted to provide other options for those who may go down this road. Another option would be to have them powder coated. Has anyone done black wrinkle finish on their wheels?
