turnbne wheels

I have a set of old turbine wheels. My jeep is painted light khaki metallic and its all trimmed out in black so I think it would look better with black wheels. I would like to keep the classic wheels so does anyone have pics of how they look painted black?

Also how does one go about painting the inside of the turbine wheels while keeping the outers unpainted? I have also thought of painting the insides of the turbines body color.

A few options here..

Powdercoat...

Use Vaseline on the flats when painting,let paint cure then wipe off.

Paint then sand off flats


I like turbines with body color myself. What I don't like is an entire wheel painted body color our black....just too much.

Personally, I don't like black wheels on anything. I think the Darth Vader look ran its course years ago. I would leave them natural or go body color between the vanes.

I have to agree Blacked out wheels are over. But... If you want you want to paint them black go for it. Its your Jeep. But I would use Plastic Dip. It come is spray cans. It last long, very easy to deal with. You can spray the entire wheel and peel off what you don't black. Google search Plastic Dip wheels. You will find lots of info and videos. It about $5 a can as Walmart, HD, Lowes etc... you will need about 1 can per wheel. Again its really easy to see if you like it it not just peel it off.

I think painting between the vanes and leaving the vanes and outer rim polished still has that classic look. If you google "vector mags" the new version of the classic wheel should pop up. They come with a similar paint scheme and should give you an idea of what yours would look like.

I had the same vision. With the plastic dip the OP can spray the entire rime then peal off the vanes and the outer rim. The plastic zip will give a clean end when pealing off on a sharp edge. Ifs really kool stuff.

Yep, you didn't post pictures so I assumed that's what you have. When I hear "old turbine" that's what I think of.

The turbines and Ansen slots are my favorite wheels ever made. No modern wheel has even come close to having the style of those two.
