I would love to see someone PHOTOSHOP that charcoal color onto a Jeep picture with Canyons.

I tried to do it myself, but lets just say that I'm not talented enough.... LOL!

Not sure if the OP ever checks this thread, but I'm interested in picking up a set of canyons for my ZJ and doing this.

What did you do to keep the edge silver? The only thing I can think of is to lay down painters tape carefully around the whole edge, or maybe laying it down, and then cutting it out with an exacto? Just wondering what you did.

Thanks!

Here's my photoshop of what it should look like:

I put painters tape down, rubbed it on nice and firm, then cut it with an X-acto.

Your good with photoshop. That looks awesome. I've been trying to photoshop my Mustang's wheels to match the satin black trim with silver edge, but can't quite get it right. If ya feel like giving it a whirl that would be awesome. If not no biggy as I know it can be time consuming.


If ya have more questions let me know.

By the way, those are ravines on your ride. The canyons would be harder to make the edge silver because they don't have a defined transition. Canyons look like this:

I have the same Unlimited and want to paint my wheels as well. Your wheels look awesome. How did you tape or mark the outside of the rim so evenly? I think that really sets the wheels off and would like to do the same.

Thanks. Sorry for the delay. Was gone out of town.

I applied painters tape, the blue stuff, pressed it on nice and firm and then used a new sharp blade in the x-acto to cut it to the transition line. Good luck and post up when ya get 'em done.

Awesome. Thanks. That will take some time, but I'm going to give it a shot. Your LJ looks great.

tyler how do you think your would have looked if you hit the entire wheel rather than leaving the lip. I do not have any chrome/silver accents on my jeep, just black and charcoal. so i think the all charcoal wheel would look tight.

I'm sure it'd look great. If you do some searching on here I think you can find some.

For me it was more a matter of function than looks. I like my wheels dynamically balanced (both sides). With the lip left alone I didn't have to worry about touching up when the tires get balanced again. Additionally, the lip is the most vulnerable to damage, and the factory clear is easier to fix.

Bumping up this thread looking to do mine. I have a Patriot Blue Wrangler and how do you think the ravines would look with Glossy Black with the polished lip and center caps?

I painted my Sahara rims with the Duplicolor Graphite (on Duplicolor primer). It took a while to tape off the rims and then I put on two coats primer and two coats of paint.

Thank you.

Probably one of the cheapest mods I've done. It cost a whopping $12 to do five wheels. That's $2.40 a wheel.
