    Make wheels black

    Just curious of what is the best way of going about this. Taking it to a shop or doing it myself. I want my wheels black just not the glossy black. The unfinished black I think they call it flat black? If anyone could show pics that would be nice just so you guys understand what im talking about.

    I dont want any gloss on it like your paint job on the car. I do not want that black. My car is already black. I seen some people drive around in black cars with flat black wheels and I think it looks sex.

    flat black will look like crap imo. flat looks like primer . . . satin black will not have a lot of shine but minimal, giving more of a finished look.

    flat often gives a chalky or dirty look.

    Powder coated is the way to go. I've seen satin black wheels powdercoated and they look the shit. I think you would be more than happy...

    Look if you want flat black. take wheels off car, clean very well. use a red scuff pad and some sanding paste or you can use comet and water. Go to the store and buy some fat black high temp paint. Done.
