Never liked dark/black rims. Rims should be visible, not hidden. wave

i used duplicolor high heat spray paint they also make wheel specific paint too i also got 2 cans of wheel clear coat 3 cans of the color you want.

wet sand the rims very good and mask off the tires i used 600 grit sand paper.

spray even coats of the color paint about 5 coats

then wet sand again after it dries

clear coat is next i did about 3 coats

then wait 48 hours for them to dry.

oops i did mispell the title sockies LOL

they look really good, how durable is the paint? Does it easily chip?

they are pretty durable so far i have had no problems with chipping and they have stood up to 4 car washes already

as long as theres a lot of clear coat you should be fine
