Can you Paint your wheels?

Black 05 Rubi, she has got silver wheels.

I am toying with the thought on painting the wheels black.

Black jeep black interior black hard top silver wheels

Wheels need to be black.

So what is the procedure to paint the Moab wheels black?

You see what I mean.

Yup. I painted mine with engine enamel from Auto Zone, and it's held up great over the past three years. It's only needed a few touch ups here and there.

EDIT: Scuff with a Scotch-Brite pad, then fine grit sandpaper in the nooks and crannies. Wash with some Simple Green. Take some note cards and stuff them around the edge of the wheel, and stick them together with masking tape once they're in place. Three coats of primer, then three coats of paint and your done.

Simple answer, YES. Been done many times here on different wheels. I did my canyons. You don't have to get to fancy or costly. Like said above,just scuff up a little. I used krylon satin black.

do a search for painted wheels. here's a couple more links.

Really easy... scuff them up, wash them really well, and paint. I actually prefer to use Krylon Dual Satin Black. It's primer + paint in one, so no need to prime before. I've had good luck with it on two sets of wheels now, it's pretty durable, and touch ups are super easy!

decent view of my spare here...

Plastidip FTW. Excellent stuff and the good thing is if you tired of it you just peel it off!

+1 on the plastidip, easy on the wallet and can be reversed.
