Love those all black rims? But yours have stripes?
 
You can remove the stripes with a small rag and some acetone. Don't rub too hard, or the black will come off. I tried this today on my spare and it worked like a charm. I saw a set of all black rims with American Racing center caps, and I know they don't come in all black. I asked around and the shop that sells them removes the stripes with acetone. And to my amazement, they were right. I am really surprised at how different they look without the stripe. The stripe never really bothered me, but now that it is gone I really like the look.

Later,
Tom

PS I had AR767 Black rims with red/blue stripes. Now all black.

The rims with the stripes are AR-767's. I bought a set of black "Rock Crawlers" made by Pro-Comp they dont have the stripes. Just thought I would throw that out there.

The reason I bought the AR767 and not the Rockcrawlers is because I was able to get the ARs for about $34 each. Much cheaper than the Rockcrawlers, and I didn't have to go to 4WheelParts. There are several variations of that wheel. Here are some different manufacturers and the part numbers.

Unique Wheel - Series 42 http://www.uniquewheel.com
US Wheel - Daytona 84-XXXX http://www.uswheel.com
American Racing - 767 http://www.americanracing.com

You can usually find the above manufacturer's wheels at discount chain stores like Discount Tire, or NTB.

Later,
Tom

Or you lift the wheel off te ground, get it spinning on the hub, and hold a paint brush with black paint on it, up to the stripes. It'll basically paint itself! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

You mean yours are actually clean enough to SEE the stripes? [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
