I think thats what the rims are called. I'm debating rattle canning mine, probably flat black.

It sounds possible..
Make sure u clean them and possible high light wet sand to take the gloss off them..

paint won't stick to gloss..


But something to think about
When you color match your rims to the vehicle.. It will give an illusion of the rims being smaller then what they actually are.. I know it sounds funny.. but hop on car domain and just go looking..

Something to think about..

I know its possible, just wondering if anyone had done it so I can see what it looks like. I'm wasn't going to colour match. I was thinking flat black or gunmetal grey, something dark.

like the other guy said, it'll really make them look small. I did it to an old set of ranger rims I had back in the day. Looked like I was running 12" rims on the poor girl. haha.
