I couldn’t find a rim I liked better and most aftermarket ones messed with the offset and had them sticking out more which I did not want. It’s hard enough to keep clean without wheels sticking way out.
In my rural area there are only a few guys doing powder coating and the guy I went with was the only one that would even reply and give me a quote. I’m sure in a bigger area with lots of competition the price would of been different.
Couldn’t find an aftermarket wheel that I wanted and GM black wheels are $500 each so a local guy powder coated them in what’s basically a matte black. Cost $110 a wheel so the total was $440. I’m really happy with the results. Total time to do the job is 3 days if you schedule an appointment. I just did a drop off and wait and it took 3 weeks but the guy was out a week with COVID.
Got these painted while waiting on my wheels to come back from powder coating. They were still wet when I I took the pics. Looks way better once they dried. Think they will look good with my black wheels.
I have searched everywhere so I hope someone here knows. I’m taking my wheels to be powder coated and really need to know this cause if I have to buy black center caps then I’m going to have to have to guys match the color of whatever center cap I have to buy vs just dropping them off and having them done in satin black. Thanks much!
I considering taking my new Chevy wheels to a local guy and having them done in black. They are aluminum and I want them black, I’d just look for new rims but I can’t find ones that I like that don’t have way more offset than I’m interested in. Anyways, will these hold up pretty good? I don’t drive it much especially in bad weather. It stays in the garage.
I went with the 2020 RST Z71 and love my truck, it’s smooth as I could ever expect from a truck and came with 18” wheels. I looked at some TB’s but they cost around $10,000 more and I just couldn’t do that
I did ceramic myself, my only advice is do all the aftermarket stuff that uses 3m tape before you do the ceramic. Think thinks like a bug shield, mud flaps and the stick on tailgate letters. After you do ceramic this stuff won’t stick to it and removing enough ceramic to get 3M to stick is a major job.
My 2020 RST Z71 came with 18” wheels and 265-65-18 tires, if I go up to 20” wheels do I stay with the same size tire with no issues? I’m not wanting to lift or level. The only reason I’m even thinking about it is there is a set of RST style wheels that caught my eye but they come in 20”. If I’m going to cause unwanted issues I will keep on looking. Thanks guys!
They would buy me a new truck or I’d sue the heck out of someone. An accident is one thing but someone just passing out and hitting me like that is getting me a new truck. If this just happened I’d go to the Dr. as you took a hard hit. My work buddy was hit hard on interstate and though he was fine till the next day. He’s not fine, 3 weeks later he’s seeing specialist after specialist for his injuries. Good luck and sorry this happened.
