Wheel Paint
Where can I get a can of Bronze Paint four wheels? I went to PepBoys and they did not have any. Also how many cans do I need to paint all four wheels?

got any guides on how to paint them?

i assume take the rims off the car one at a time, but not sure how to cover the tyre up etc.

You just need masking tape & newspaper...the more the better so the paint wont seep through the newspaper and stain the tire. You can go to a body shop supply store, they have kits that will let the paint stick to the wheel better than using sandpaper.
