Do it. It'll look great. Do a search and you'll find some. Here is how I did my Ravines:

What type of gloss black paint did you use? I've been wanting to do my ravines black for a while but duplicolor's wheel paint doesn't come in black.

Looks great! I may do mine like that too. What type of clear coat did you use over the paint?

I've did my winter wheels with an Ace brand black lacquer, was surprised how well they held up to washings after whatever CDOT sprayed on the roads all winter. Looking to use the same Black lacquer on my Moab's unless some else knows of something better?

Not Moabs but aluminum wheels nonetheless.

I used Krylon fusion satin black then used Duplicolor Wheel Clear coat on 'em. Worked pretty darn well.

I used duplicolor. It's not black though. It's a dark charcoal mettalic. We did do my friends canyons with duplicolor flat black, and then just cleared over that to get gloss.

I use the duplicolor clear for wheels. They have been holding up very well.
