Painted stock rims.

I'm broke. I wont be getting my new rims/tires for a few months, so I decided to paint my rims black today.

I think they look better.

You just have to tape off the outer rim with tape.. and scratch up everywhere on the rim with sandpaper (I used 120 grit)..

Then I put on about 4 coats of rustoleum matte black.

Looks like this, it's about 5 dollars per can. I used Three cans..
