What is the RPO code or stock # for the 20" black wheels?
Wanting to change my bling chrome to flat black.
I've got the 20" Chrometech wheels that were an option on my 2012 SRX 4 Premium Collection that I just got and want to put the same wheel but black.
Any body tried painting over chrome?
I'm in the same boat (wanting to replace the bling chrome rims). Not sure there were ever black rims offered though.
As for painting you could go the "el cheepo" plasti-dip route to see if you like it (peal it off if you don't). Our rims are aluminum with a chromed plastic "hub cap" fused to the rim. I would think you could sand down the chrome (or at least scuff it) and have them permanently painted (platic under that chrome finish).
I saw black SRX 4 with black wheels and lug nuts (the same wheel we have except black)at a shopping center yesterday. Got out and looked close. Should have waited longer to the owner and what he did. Now I wonder how he got the black lugs.
Any body shop can/could. Or a person could in their garage too. I will be doing it to my ATS wheels for winter.
We did it to my brother's '11 Silverado LTZ's 20" chrome rims (and step boards) too. Looks great when you do it right. Looks like horrible dog snot when not done right.
