    Just wonderin if anyone has taken the time to paint their factor teardrop wheels black. I dont know if it would stick very well, but $5-10 in spray paint is a little cheaper than new black steel wheels. I did it on my F-250 when I had it and it turned out great, but I am pretty sure they were steel wheels. Just checking for insight, and possibly a picture.
    Thanks

    i've seen the inside part of the teardrop painted and it looked pretty sweet like that.

    Ive seen the inside painted too, and if I go with some black steel wheels, thats what im gonna do.

    sell them for a few hundred, than buy black wheels, it will look better and you will be making money!

    off topic a bit

    Big351bronc, Hey I know this is off topic a bit but I saw in your signature that you run Pro Comp AT's.... any comments on them, how you like them, what you think of the dirt traction, etc?? I am getting ready to order some and it's hard getting any real opinions on 'em. Thanks.
