Default Black crosslace rims??

Has GM ever had black crosslace rims for Bonnevilles or any other vehicle that would fit? I think I saw a Fiero Formula with black ones but I'm not sure. Don't even know if Fiero rims will fit the Bonneville stud pattern.

How about aftermarket?

Fiero'* had black crosslaces, but they were 15x6 with a 5x100 bolt pattern.
I have seen them over on clubgp (1989-1996 Grand Prix 16x8 crosslaces painted black professionally).

Who would do the painting? General auto body shop or big dollar specialty shop?

Any place that does rim repairs would be able to paint them.
There is a 92-95 Bonneville in town (black) with black cross laced rims.
I've carded him once or twice....

On average wheel repair shops charge $50 a wheel to their repairs, totally clean the wheel and have it powdercoated the color you want it. I was looking at a shop in Minnesapolis MN that will do them for $45 a wheel and Im thinking about gun metal or oem gold.

I thought it would be sweet also, but I think gold would go with the cars persona better.
