I painted mine black. I just used some cheap exterior paint from Home Depot. It holds up pretty good except for the very edge of the rim because that rubs on roots and stuff alot so it scratches off. I'm happy with mine. They just need a light touch up every few months.

I used to have pictures of it. I might take some more tomorrow.

I painted my ITP steel rims black,just washed them,then used a red Scotch-brite to scuff them up,wiped them down with a tack rag and painted them satin black with Krylon spray can.Looks cool and so far has held up without peeling.

I have pictures of stock rims that I painted black in my gallery. I tried several types of paint and found the Rustoleum worked best. I put on several coats of primer and paint. So far I haven't had any problems with chipping or scratching.

Rustoleum works the best. I painted my stock wheels and they would get scratches, but the beauty of the Rustoleum is you can just touch them up again and again. I only got my Delta's because I got a new set of tires and were keeping the stockers. Here are the stockers below, then the ITP Delta Black Steel wheels with 27 inch Mud Lite XL's on them.

My friend did his truck rims with a special paint that is made for painting rims. He bought it at Napa.

My painted rims are holding up just fine. I have been riding several times with them and haven't had any scratching or peeling problems. They have been through swamps, mud, 100's of miles of trails, and several powerwashes without a problem.

I wouldnt mind powder coating them....but for the cost it would be just as easy to buy they ITP steel delta wheels, and have the stocks as back ups.....unless i am wrong on the the price to powder coat?
Try this link <a href="http://www.premier-powder.com/" target="_blank">http://www.premier-powder.com/</a>

I'm not sure of the shipping cost to and from, but he does really good work and is very reasonable. Has a variety of colors & variations also.

I used Rustoleum BBQ High Heat, works great very flat finish . Clean the rims, wipe them down , spray it .. Touch up when needed .. I put my rims throught a lot of down wood, rock, briars ... the paint has held up very well ..
