Theyre probably painted aluminum as I dont think any new mustangs have chrome rims. Do they look like this...?

To answer your question, though, it depends on your painter. It costs $75 a wheel here for powdercoating and I can't imagine painting is much cheaper because it is more work, but I am in an expensive market, so I'd guess $50-$100 a wheel for decent work.

Those are polished aluminum wheels. They are more than likely clear coated as well. Like others mentioned, your best option for black would be powdercoating, rather than paint, for the amount of work in preparing them for paint, it's more cost effective to powder coat, and of course more durable as well. Personally I would never waste my time with plasti-dip, too cheap looking for me. I can see this route for some POS junker, or ricer, but not for a mustang.

As mentioned, powder coat is the way to go. It is more resistive to chips and searches. I have a guy around here that does it for around $50-75 a rim depending on color and rim size. I would imagine black being the less expensive option.
