Anyone paint their wheels?

I've got the 20" polished wheels. Thinking about having the dished area painted flat black to match my stripe and front/rear paint. I dunno if anyone else has done this or not, and if I knew how to use photoshop or or knew someone who did, I'd post a picture of what I'm talking about.... Hope you get the idea?

Thanks Donivan

I've seen it done the other way, with the "spokes" painted black. I didn't like it.

You should post this in the photoshop thread so those guys will see it.

I'm thinking about doing this as well

do you guys just drop off the car at a paint shop and they take care of it? or do you have to take them off, un-mount the tire and just bring in the rim?

My painter and I were discussing this. He's going to bag the car and mask off the tires and rims accordingly, and do the sanding/prep/paint with it all on the car.

Im sure to get powder coated you'd have to strip the wheel and take it in that way
