Painted ZJ Limited Wheels

I know there is thread after thread like this... but I have searched and searched.... and who knows I might have missed it, but I spent enough time... searching!

Has anyone painted their Wheels like these black and kept the gold spokes part?



Just wanting to see what it would look like.

Thanks.

IMHO black and gold would look sick... much better than the silver

Yea I was thinking the black and gold would look pretty cool... but I wanted to see if anyone had did it before I did...

I probably won't get around to doing it till later this summer.

If anyone has pics though, I'd like to see them!

Ive wanted to buy rims like that and just paint them a gloss black, but and gold and black would look good too.

Have you thought about how you would go about painting it? I'm just thinking out loud here, but maybe you could skip taping off all the gold and just paint the whole rim black. Then let the coats dry before taping over the black and spray the stock gold parts gold again.. if that makes sense.

Yea... I understand what your saying. I guess it would make it a bit more complicated. I don't know, I was just thinking about taping off the gold part really good, and then just painting the silver part black you know.

I wish I could see it before I did it. I tried photoshop, but I suck at it.

Interesting idea. I've always wondered about polishing the silver portion so it shines up like chrome. Have done that to a few other styles of OEM aluminum rim with corroded clear coat making em look like azz and ended up with a custom look on a beer budget.

That's my fave style of ZJ rim, for whatever reason it makes the tires look taller. Must be the size of the holes between the spokes tricking the eye or something. Wondering if the black face would enhance that effect or reduce it.
