Removed chrome wheel covers and painted the wheels

 So today I was a little bored and wanted to check my rear tire pressure. With the chrome covers on this is impossible on the dual rear wheels. The covers are 4 hole and the wheels 7 hole so they don't line up and there is just no way to get in there with a gauge so......

 I removed the chrome covers, painted the wheels black satin and reused the chrome centers. See pic below. What ya think?

If the wheels were actually chromed I could never bring myself to do it.  But chrome covers, absolutely!  My VW TDI's snow tire wheels got the black painted steel treatment, and I like it, though wish the chrome center caps weren't so expensive so I could bring myself to finish it.  It doesn't look as good on a gold vehicle as it does on silver, but I wasn't about to buy a set of aluminum wheels for dedicated snow tires.

I saw a set of the Night edition dually wheels on Facebook a few weeks ago, I think the guy wanted $1700-1800 for them.  For 6 new tires and decent looking wheels it's not a bad deal though.  I think the 5th gen duallies have a different lug pattern though.
