Blacking out my rims

Anyone have pics of these rims in black? Thinking of blacking them out instead of buying new ones, thanks

I haven't seen those in black, but I think they would look great. I just painted my own.

Here's a photoshop mockup of them painted black with plasti dip and glossifier. I'm doing mine tomorrow so I'll have real photos soon.

Creatively pleasing or just too much?

I have since removed the Plasti dip as I think flat black wheels have been played out but I did get a ton of compliments. I wanted low profile and stealth but this finish actually attracts a lot of attention. Many thought it was factory.

Here you go. Freshly dipped today. 5 coats of black, 3 fairly heavy coats of gloss.

I will say this: pay very special care to the lip of these wheels. I had to touch up several times after spraying because when I was peeling off the over spray it started peeling it off the wheel. The gap between the lip and tire is so small its REALLY hard to get good coverage there to get it to stick.
