American Eagle 186's in black?

Trying to decide on a tire/rim combo and have decided on 18" AE 186's in black and Cooper Discoverer STT LT325/65R18 but I can't find them. I can find them in silver but not black. Anybody know where I can find them?

It doesn't look like Eagle offers the 186 in any finish other than "Super Finish." What about having them powder coated? Also, if you are not set on 18", you could go with a 17" 185.

Be careful about powder coating AE 186's with these big vans.
Take a look at this post.

There are a number of us out there that have had to had the 186's replaced due to aftermarket powder coating.

FWIW, I would stick with a factory finished wheel, but I know that others have had no problems with after market paint.

Wasn't there an option for them to be Teflon coated? Or something like that? We are out at Lake Amistad right now. I will check on ours when we get home.
