    This is a picture of my car. I was wondering if anyone has blacked these out. I just wanted to know what my car will look like all black before I decide to make the step and do it. Thanks!

    I searched all the way to page 25 and couldn't find anything on these particular rims or set up! Has this been done before?
    Thanks!

    OK, time to engage your imagination! If you go to JimmieJam's thread titled dipped my wheels you can see what they would look like. Indeed, they aren't the older wheels like yours, but you should be able to get a good idea of what they would look like!

    Anyone out there with his 'set up' (whatever that is) who has dipped their wheels?

    By "setup" I just meant a black sedan with these wheels that is all! For instance I wanted to see if anyone out there has dipped this wheel model on a black sedan. But I guess you can sort of get the idea from that "setup" he did.
    Thanks!

    Yes, I dipped my wheels a little over a year ago. They still look like the day I did them. Drove the guys at the dealership crazy when I was in last December for an oil change so it is very different looking due to the color. What else can I tell you?

    Search for my post about this. I did it for winter time only. I may have posted an overall pic. I know I posted some closeups.

    actually mine are dipped. Don't know what the thread is though. If you search my post you should find one. They come out pretty good.

    This is the stock 18" in a high gloss gunmetal / charcoal - they almost change color under different lighting - here they look more black, under direct sunlight more the dark gunmetal with a hint of metallic...
