Black Stock Rims? Not 1LE.

I've beens seeing many people with black i guess powdercoated rims? Flat black rims just like the polished aluminum rims and they look amazing on the car. If i can get the rims, I'm going to completely black on black everything. Anyone know if this is simple household done or has to be done by a professional?
I just realized this belongs in a different section. Please delete it? i don't know how.

Most of them are probably just Plastidipped or powdercoated. These are Plastidipped

I like the powder coating for rims, but plastidip is easy and you can do it yourself. Cheap and easy to go back if you don't like

I got mine professionally powder coated. You could always plasti dip them but I personally think that plasti dipping them doesn't look as good and it obviously won't last as long
They charged me 110 for each wheel

I found that the trick to plastidip is to use the glossifier and wipe down with Adams VRT every other week or so.

I bought a set of the Replica rims (4 rims all 20x9) from Discount Tire for < $500 and rotated my stock 275's up to the front and got some 275 Nitto 555R DR's and put them on the back.
