thanks.....i think i would remove the tires first before i did mine. Isnt there a brand like krylon or close that offers wheel paint now at the local auto store? Duplicolor i think????adavis99 said:
very good points.i understand # 2. mine are in storage and i am ready to do something with them. make them my track wheels and tires. i am almost scared to call the powdercoating place. that would be the best choice however.and a better selling point if it comes. I think my color would have to be conservative yet sporty just in case i do decide to ever trade or sell. So can you pick the listed colors when going powdercoated or am i limited there?FourDoor said:roy, if your tires are dismounted now, I would go with powdercoat. It is much more durable and the finish will be much better. The reason I painted mine were:
1. It only cost $50-$60 in materials.
2. I did not want to dismount my tires yet since powederocating would have put my truck out of commission for about a week since I don't have a spare set of wheels yet
3. If I was going to get them powdercoated, the shop needed to sandblast the wheels originally anyways so if i painted them it would not have hurt to try painting them first.
#2 was my biggest concern actually.
In terms of colors here is what I think would look good on Galaxy Black:
1. Semi-Gloss Black
2. Flat Black
