My stock alloys are pretty pitted up and nasty from winter in OhiO. So, I want to paint them to match my sliders, which is the Rustolium Hammertie Black. Just plan on cleaning them well, rough em up with sand paper, wipe them down again, then hit em with some Duplicolor wheel paint, then the rustolium, and follow that up with some clear coat. Sound like a plan?

Here's stock:


and a photochop of black:


Whacha think? Do it??

p.s. I got some 265/75 Liberators on the way also. :D

if you don't want to worry about the paint chipping off and its also something you hardly ever see but is indeed possible, have them line-X'd, that would be bad ass, and they can do it, and if you sanded them yourself and rubbed acetone all over them before you went they would definately do them cheaper

do it man! i wish i had my syock wheels still i would do it to them now i i have to buy some black steelies this week for my 32s i got friday. so do it man!

I have my stock wheels off my '97, probably need the center caps but they are overall pretty good shape, I have them and two sets of aftermarket wheels.

So "three's a crowd" I can let you have the stock set pretty cheap if you are interested, then you could paint them!

Let me know here or through email– [email protected]

Do it. I painted my stockies black. One piece of advice, use some primer before the color (black) coats and clearcoat. It will really help the paint stick to the wheel, and should give it some added durability.
