Thanks! I used a can of heat resistant matt black spray paint (not sure about the brand, but I will check) I did not use any primer, since there was paint on previously, I hope it doesn't peel... I did do the back as well, so I used about a whole can for the wheel.

Sorry about the hi-jack scross!

If you're not fixing it, you're not driving a Jeep.

I did the spare last weekend and have a pic posted on page 2, its gonna take some time to do the rest of the wheels between all the DIY the wife wants done around the house, but I'll be sure to post pics as I go!

your before pic looks better than my current pic lol, i was thinking of trying this on my WJ, you have inspired me now

so you used 150-600 grit sand paper to sand the wheels, then Dupicolor silver rim paint and clear coat, then wetsand with 1500 grit?

keep us posted on how long it lasts, i did this to my car rims and winter took a beating on them...they started to peel a little, but i probably could have sanded them better

Sorry for the delay getting back to you I was in California on business for a couple of weeks and just got back. Yes I used 600 grit to sand but if you have a really badly chipped or scratch wheel then start with the 150 grit first. I used the Dupicolor clear adhesion promoter first then 3 coats of silver and 3 coats of clear. Only wet sand with 1500 or 2000 grit if you want the hi shine but I only did it to one wheel since I did a better job on the clear coat on the other wheels. Still looks good and its been over a month.
