Ugh, I don't like wheels like those where they have a flat look to them, I prefer the deep-dish look.

Anywho here's mine:
Before:

Of course they weren't this clean or shiny when I painted them, but I don't have any before pics on my computer of the actual wheels.

After:

Two coats primer, three coats black (I believe Rustoleum brand), two coats clear.

I painted mine the other day. I used Krylon Fusion satin black and it looks really good. All I did was pulled the wheels off, scuffed them up a bit, then painted several coats of paint. The paint has held up well on my bumpers, plus, it's an easy fix to touch them up if they do get scratched. Let me know what you think.

All these look great.

I've toyed with the idea of getting some icons, gotta love aluminum rims.

i agree, mine turned out way better than i expected. i think the preparation really helped. i toyed with getting mine powdercoated but it was a bit expensive for my budget.

I used Rustoleum rust inhibitor and then Rustoleum Satin Black. About two wheels per can. Also did the front and rear bumpers.

Wow, what a difference a little paint makes. I've always liked black or darker wheel colors.

Although it's not meant for a wheel I wonder how this would do? It's pricey for a can. How many cans did you guys use to do your wheels?
