I LOVE black wheels, but as you see in my avatar, I have the factory alum wheels. I want to swap to black wheels either steel (with the round holes) or aluminum. The problem is I have like no budget with three kids and going to school while running a small business.
Is there any kind of interest in these wheels out there. Maybe enough to break even on the steel black wheels like the Pro Comp Series 98's
I wouldn't ruin those factory aluminum wheels, if they are in good shape. I bet after painting they start flaking and look terrible in short order. Thats the best looking wheel for our trucks, if you ask me. Put up a wanted ad on craigslist and see is someone will trade you for what you want. You could also try to sell them. If they are nice, I bet you can get 200-300 for them. Once you paint them, they will be worth about 0 dollars.
TexasGuy, that was my original issue as you can read in my post (ruining them I mean). And trading them was my original plan. Good to know they are of some value too. Gonna think about this before I do anything. Thanks for the input!
I agree w texas but not on the value. But i guess it depends where you are. Around here they are 100-200/ As for painting, it is just like painting anything else. They already have clearcoat so you just need to sand that(220-320), then clean with a wax and grease remover, then paint
You might consider finding a used set of the old white spoke steel wheels. I bought some for $10 each, stripped them, primed & painted with Implement paint and finished with a several coats of clear. I think they came out pretty good for a $60 total investment (and lots of labor).
hit some junkyards. you never know what you will find. i have a set of wagon wheels i pulled off a old bronco. all i did was clean em up a lil bit and hit em with a couple coats of white and clear. total investment in those is rite at 45 bucks.
