ShadowRaven:

I like how you painted your wheels!!

Did you painted by your own?

What procedure did you use? where do you get the paint? It is a canned paint?

Thanks??

ok. I finally got tired of looking at everyone else's black wheels so I did it myself. Not bad. This was just a quick paint job. Once I decide if I like it or not I probably will get them powder coated and new tires.

Okay that looks completely........












BADASS!!!!

I really like your ride.... It was the 2-door Explorer Sport that got me so interested in Explorers.... I always told myself I wanted one but when I was finally in the market for a new vehicle, they were discontinued, so I got a '04 Ex.. I really wanted a black Ex so I could later do the black rims but they only had a white Explorer on the lot that had the options I wanted (or didn't want)....

Black rims can really be hit or miss... If you don't get the right rim and match it with the right type of tire, it can look like your truck is riding on a bunch of spare tires....
 






These are my favorite pics on this site - by FAR!!

I think you could put those black wheels/big tires on
a Toyota and I'd probably think it was cool.

Nah... Those are always dorky.

Now I gotta get to shopping!!
 






here's mine black wheels,

Well since everyone is posting pictures of their black wheels, I guess I will jump on the bandwagon. It is a 92 sport, with the stock modular wheels powdercoated black.

Personally, this is the cleanest explorer I've ever seen. Please post more pictures or link me to a photo album! :thumbsup:
 






gonna be tough for that to happen , have not seen him online in a bit, and he sold it, when the front wheel fell off, on the highway,

With a full side view :cool:

This might sound stupid but did you have to do anything like sanding or applying some sort of rockguard before applying the paint?
 












Had my stock wheels and covers powdercoated black.

blocks wont work on an explorer to lift they actually lower it due to the springs being under the axle
