I have a set of helo maxx 6 wheels. The ones with the Chrome lip, my question is what pInt should I use to paint them Matte black. Or would it be best to bedliner them? I want to do this before I get my general grabbers. And what would be the best way to prep the wheels. Thanks guys for the help ahead of time

I used VHT primer, paint and clear coat on a set of steel wheels. What a waste of money. I got better results using cheap paint from Ace Hardware.

I would suggest using the VHT? blackchrome package as a primer so the flat black paint has something to stick to. Unless you want to take your chances with an etching primer over the chrome. But it is a general no no to paint over chrome and expect it to last. It WILL chip off eventually. The absolute best thing to do is have the chrome removed, chemically (de-chromed) or mechanically (sand blasted), then have them powdercoated or painted with good automotive (or duplicolor wheel) paint.
