Painting the stock rims

I have a black 05 gt an want to go for the "blacked out" look. Right now I'm trying to get black rims and was wondering is it hard to just paint the stock rims? And what should I use to paint them?

I wouldn't do it if I were you. Just wait til you can buy some, you'll be happier. Watch CL for some. If you are dead set on using stock, sand blast and powder coat them.

Agreed!.... But if ur impatient and want a cheap job .... Use plasti dip to see what it will look like.... Plast dip is easy to peel off if you don't like or decide u want the original color back .... Also plasti dip is flat black .... If u do like u could clear coat or gloss coat to make them shine ...

I hope you used the plasti dip clear coat or you'll have a heck of a time taking that stuff off if you ever decide to. Plasti dip is awesome stuff though and also very forgiving if you make a mistake. I'll attach pics of my stang with plasti dip racing stripes.

I bought it at home depot for $5.99 a can. It's super simple to do it yourself. If you clear coat it, make sure to use the plasti dip clear not clear paint. Otherwise, when you take it off it is extremely difficult. There is no reason to pay someone to do it. Do a min of 3-4 coats waiting about 10 min between coats. Check you tube for how to videos.

Also as a ref, I did a 8 inch wide racing stripe from front to back and it took 2 cans.
