MT Side Biter Wheels

These wheels come in GLOSS black. And only as small as 17"
Anybody know where/how I can get some that are FLAT black (with a durable coating). I'm guessing that everyone will say to powder coat them. Right? Anything easier/cheaper?
Love the black, just not the gloss.
I would also love to get these in 15 or 16"
Any thoughts?

I wanted the MTs when I bought mine but they were still a few months out so I went with the Eagle 197s. I didn't like the gloss black or the chrome caps. I fixed that with some well placed rock rash and some flat black rattle can...

I touch them up after every wheeling trip and could care less about rock rash.





I don't plan on rock rashing the new WEs..... going to put an OMF rock ring on those and I am not sure about if I am going to paint them or not.

I like the look of that. Do you have a photo of the side of your JK (showing the entire profile)?

Does the black rattle-can match the wheel finish? Looks like it might be a tad off.

Can you get black caps and lugs for that wheel?

That was the center cap painted... I painted the whole wheel... I didn't realize it was just the center cap when I posted it.
