car rims provide a striking difference from more traditional steel
or chrome wheels. Even the plainest black rims are a bold look that
will make people look twice when you pass by. If you’re looking
for a different kind of look, or just want to stand out from the crowd,
black car rims are perfect for you.
There are two types of black car rims, surface painted
rims and solid black rims. A painted rim will be less expensive, but
the finish will also be less durable. Chips, road wear, or accidents
can and will ship and scratch the finish, revealing the color of the
metal beneath your surface coat. Luckily there are paints available
to refinish a colored rim. If you buy painted rims you should invest
in some matching paint to touch up your rims as they age.
The other kind of black car rim is the solid black rim.
These rims are made of a composite alloy to be black through and through.
That means that no matter if they are scratched, banged up, or chipped
they will only show black. Because of the exotic alloy required to
make a solid black rim, they are more expensive than the painted variety.
However if you’re looking for the standard to which a colored
rim is held, this is it.
