All of those look very good. I want to paint mine but snow and cold is not good to paint in. Any one have a picture of any WJ rims painted?

I thought of painting my wheels but thought it would never work until i saw this. I was thinking of getting soft black 8s for my jeep but that was going to be around $250. Painting the stock wheels was about $11.50. And they give me the look i was looking for!

I took all the wheels off the jeep to paint to avoid any over spray that might hit the jeep


Then sanded them with a 220 grit sand paper (don't sand them inside the dust that comes off will kill u)

Take your time with the tape!! U don't want to paint your tires, it gust wont look right, Also cover over the valve stem.


Now i used Dupli-color Acrylic Enamel. I got it from a Advanced Auto Parts for around $5.99 a can. It used a little more that a can to do all 5 wheels. But i put on light coats if u go heaver it might take more


Now let the paint dry and see how she looks

Painted Fix

My Jeep came with crappy looking white wagon wheels. After 10 years they were looking junky and rusty. So I gave them a shot of Rustolium flat black and it changed the whole look of the Jeep. It cost a few bucks, took an afternoon and it was well worth it! Besides I had nothing to lose.
