I know there are threads with photos of JetBlack on black OEM rims but I wanted to get a better idea with some shots of my own car.

My skills are lacking in the photo shop department....if anyone would be so kind, I'd love to see the below photos with my rims in black. Preferably some samples in gloss and some in flat black. Thanks! :grinyes:

Hopefully somebody with more time or skill can actually help, but here is my (pretty bad) 5-minute attempt:

Can't say the all black does it for me. Maybe black centers with chrome lip?

lol....that's sorta what my renditions looked like. I'm hoping someone can do a more accurate depiction, thanks though :tonquesmilie:

I'm still on the fence as well...just trying to get a better idea. I don't really like black centers with chrome lips...I prefer a solid color whatever it may be.

I did it as much for the practice as for actually helping you out :D

I'll have to give myself a pretty low grade on this one - I didn't even match the reflection in the water!

You can always mask off the tires and do 2-3 coats of black plasti-dip. It is a rubbereized coating, but looks just like paint. You can literally peel it off and be back at square one. I did it to my winter wheels, I'm pretty impressed by it. It finishes in a satin black, but I suppose you could use a clear-coat spray on top of it to make it glossy.

That is a great idea! I might just do that... when it warms up. How many cans did it take to do the wheels?

I prefer the glossy dark-finished like the Lexus ISF?
