Anyways, if your gonna paint your wheels, heres what ya need to do.
1. Get some 320 grit sandpaper and take as much of the clearcoat off the stock wheels as possible.
2. Use rubbing alcohol to get off all the access dust, grease and dirt. Tape off the tires to prevent overspray.
3. With some sandable primer, put 2 light coats on the wheels. After they dry (bout an hour) BARLEY sand the primer, this will give the wheel paint something to stick to and sink into the scratches of the primer.
4. Wipe off the dust with alcohol, let dry.
5. Get the wheel paint (part number for my color was WP102, Graphite, picked it up at Advance for 6 bucks a can) and spray up to 3 light coats, waiting at least 30 min between coats. 3 light coats is better than one heavy coat.
6. Take off the tape from the tires.
7. With a cold beer in your hand, stand back and admire your work. Give her a good bath, take her to town and see how many heads you turn.
