Value of stock aluminum wheels?

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 thought of that but isn't a real chore to make it "stick"? I don't want to ruin them either.

I'll Google "painting aluminum wheels" and see what I find.

It looks like the clean/degrease/320 grit sand/clean/dry/etching primer/4 light coats of quality paint will work!

I'm gonna go for it and see how it comes out.

clean them with muriatic acid & wash them off with water to strip them & then paint will stick

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).

I've had the AR black steelies like you made yours look like and I loved them. I just seem to like the round-holed black ones a bit more.

I'm pretty sure mine aren't show-room condition either so I'll put the labor in and see what I can do.
