Default 20" Sport Chrome Clad Wheels

Just wondering if there is any way to tint or black out these wheels?
I know its just a plastic cover but I thought some one might know something about this???
I think they would look awesome with some type of black chrome finish!

Look here meow. Meow I'm sure you can always get them powder coated. Meow keep in mind I don't know much about powder coating.

I'm not sure about powder coating a plastic cover like that, it has to be more of a metal to powder coat.

I was looking into that as well. I was trying to find someone who pulled the chrome plastic off to see if the wheel under the chrome was worthy of coating.

We've had a few members who stripped the chrome cladding off either by patiently sanding it, or just going to town with a wire wheel.

I have a company here in Houston that if I can find some one with the 20" aluminum non-chrome capped wheels willing to trade me for the chrome ones on my '07 can powder coat the wheel to match my truck and then come back and machine off the flat surfaces, followed by a clear coat

Cladding is bonded on. Taking it off would likely yield a very ugly steel wheel underneath.
