I personally don't like the black rim look. Makes the wheels look smaller, imo. Stock rims look good to me. I have those same ones and while, no, they're not as sexy as the aluminum ones, they are apparently quite strong.

should look good with an all black truck. if you paint them your going to have to take off those center caps and black out the lugs and stuff, but it would be cool

well i was planning on when i get new meats to sandblast and powder coat it since they have to cure in the oven, so the center caps wouldnt be an issue, thanks for the opinions, i still have about 10 thousand miles on the tires so it might be a little while.

leave the outer lip area natural and powdercoat the inside.

if you want an aftermarket look, then just save up a bit and buy new wheels and tires (if needed). OEM wheels (on any car) should never be painted IMO.
