"tinmac".....I think it looks nice and would probably look nicer with the chrome beauty rings.

Just keep the stock wheels for resale. The next buyer may not share your taste.

There is a Newmar Dutch Star that the owner had painted all black, from the factory, and added black rims. I hope in intends to keep it forever as it will be tough to off load.



Already sold the old rims and tires on craigslist.

I can always buy new stainless steel liners and install them over the rims just like the old ones had, so my new look is not permanent, besides in person they look better than my pics, gives my motorhome a new look like all the trucks and Jeeps are going now with black rims.


Now I got to get 5 black rims for my jeep.

I thought the 'black wheel' trend was to match the black color and blacked out trim on the vehicle. Rears look good to me but the front looks a bit out of place against the white side panels.

Was my thought but check these pics out, my angle caused to much shadowing but it does look better in person than the pics, might go with the chrome beauty rings later.

Or maybe a black center cap and lugs.

Does look better from the distance as it blends in with the black paint... even in the front.

Never did like the chrome rim look and they are too hard to keep polished. I am stuck with them now but might swap them out to painted rim's when I buy new tire's.

I like the of the black painted rim's.

I like the look of the fronts better, I like the contrast.

I like it. I ran black wheels on a black dually once, not a fan of chrome. In fact I just removed a chrome decorative exhaust tip from my brand new toad.

I got tired of the noisy wheel simulators on our B+ a couple of years ago. Picked up chrome "beauty rings" and OEM hub caps for a 3500 series Chevrolet dually from the surplus dealers around Elkhart IN. $40 all in, no noise and I like the look on the factory grey wheels.
