Paintins over Chrome Wheels
Just picked up a YJ and hate the chrome (rusting) wheels. No money for new wheels right now so i was going to just paint them satin black. Any Advice?
I painted my chrome spare wheel/tire that i have. Paint doesn't stick well to chrome so scuff them up and prep them as best you can and use a good self etch primer before you paint. It still may chip off easier than if you were painting bare metal. I painted my spare about a year ago and it still looks good
Sandblast em, a buddy of mine just did that and then hit em with some krylon and clearcoat.......turned out great.
