If you're going to change the color, powder coat them. Spray paint might look good for a couple months, but it'll start to chip and then look terrible and cheap.

I spray bombed my wheels back in the day. They turned out well enough. Got a few chips here and there, but the color stayed consistent. I did the full primer - color - clear in rattle can.

I'm willing to bet you could google your car's year, make and model and you would be able to find a photo of your rim.

If you read... He really wants to see the "pimp" factory wheels....

Get your weight up, not your hate up.

I can imagine a 2000 Accord.

Click the link, pick 2000 then pick your rim... Send us the photo.

Save up a bit of cash and find a nice set of wheels on Craigslist.

Can't tell you how many times I've seen some nice 4 lug wheels for Honda and Scion for dirt cheap. $250, $350. Would be better than spray painted factory wheels in my opinion.

How hard can it be? I just brought up STL on Craigslist and there is dozens of wheels listed just like there is in Boston (my area), you need to take the time and continuously search for what you want, over a few weeks time. You will be much more satisfied with a set of used wheels than you will be with a sprayed painted set.

Blasphemy. I spent six months in BCT and ACT at Fort Leonard Wood, about an hour out from St. Louis. That place is wheels galore. Every private fresh out of school stationed anywhere near there has wheels on their ride. People in St. Louis go through wheels like I go through 12 packs of Mountain Dew. I can't tell you how many times I've been in taxis that even had a set of wheels. Check around your area, check online around Ft. Lost in the Woods and you'll surely find wheels. I guarantee it, and if you can't find a set of wheels within the first few weeks then my name isn't Harry Stamper!

I say take your time, prime, and paint. I know lots of people who have spray bombed their wheels and had good results.

It's cheap enough to buy some prep, primer, and spray paint...so I say go for it.

If that fails, you have **** looking wheels until you can afford some from Craigslist. biglaugh.gif icon_razz.gif

prep is going to be key...if you want to paint them...paint them, its your car icon_wink.gif

It can be done well if properly done...make sure you sand the wheels first, tape off whatever you dont want to paint...prime them, paint them and clearcoat...

make sure you do it in temps above 65F (preferably above 70F)

A lot of people have had good luck with Krylon Paint when painting wheels etc....a lot of my truck was donw with Krylon Gloss Black to include wiper cowl, fender flares, wipers, badges, door handles, mirror caps, grill

I have always sprayed my wheels, prepped and did all that.

I get a FEW chips here and there really depends on your roads and such. But IMO if the car is totally daily driven I'd always spray over powder coat. Powder coat can chip just like paint can, only difference is it is much harder and more exspensive to make powder coat look nice again compared to spray bombing =]

I have seen some UGLY volvos, but god are they some drift machines. And can make some damn good power if they are turbo.

I always wanted wheels, but always went to my motor and suspension before i went to wheels.

Plenty of cars can be made to look pretty nice even on factory dubs lol. All about what and how you do it.

How do you like 17... but not 19...

Come on... Teenagers.... Early twenties... Late twenties... early 30s... late 30s... 40... 50s... 60s...

They all blend together if you can guess ages within a year I will be impressed.
