Flat black Jeep center caps?

Having the stock 20's powder coated FLAT BLACK this week, looking for flat black center caps that will match.

Stupid question.....can the plastic center caps be powder coated? Assuming not, but thought I'd ask

Any companies sell flat black center caps? BT sells gloss black, not flat......hmmmmm? Should I just scuff and rattle can the stock caps?

Thank all! Going to scuff and spray myself :-)

Also thinking about doing the chrome lug nuts too. Should hold up OK, considering I dont remove the wheels ever. Thoughts?

Just buy black lug nuts. You an paint the chrome ones but black lugs are inexpensive and look and hold up great.

I agree about just spray painting the stock caps.

Stock caps are plastic and can't be powdered since they can't be baked in a hot oven without melting.


I also agree with buying black lug nuts.
