@Airzilla are you going to plasti-dip your rims too to make a match?
I was thinking of doing this .. and plasti-dipping the emblems another color.. maybe red (along with side logos)..

Are these black.. or just coated black?

Hey - I basically removed the lame hubcaps and painted each steel wheel flat black with an industrial quality spray paint - The original black finish was not too bad but I wanted to touch them up especially where the hubcap openings exposed the rims to more weather, sunlight, etc. causing a weathering effect - Before paint, I hit them with degreaser and Simple Green - Then hit them with my pressure washer - This "refurb" really cleaned them up and they are now looking like new - I will post pix once I get the lug nut cap/covers installed that I ordered - Stay tuned...

Update: Received the lug nut covers - Here are before and after pix - What say you on the look, etc. - Not all lugs have the plastic washer for factory hubcaps - The ones that do look better, others are showing a bit of chrome more so than I prefer - And I'm not sure I dig the gloss look of the covers - Overall, I would still like to have a set of black anodized lug nuts for the steelies just need to find them...

Looks great! In my experience dust/dirt gets on them quick and they lose their glossy look. You are the only one likely to notice the tiny chrome lip at the bottom.
