find an auto paint supplier near you, they should be able to mix your paint color up in a rattle can.

i dont think sherwin williams does automotive paint. i know finish-master is a larger auto paint supplier in michigan, you could see if there is one near you, otherwise look in the phone book for autobody supply or auto paint supply. something along those lines.

dont mix paint... find a color in a spray can that you like... the wheels will get scratched up wheeling and then all you have to do is get out that rattlecan and touch em up... less work later and probably cheaper!

I'm pretty sure you can get it in cans from Advance Auto, Duplicolor sells it. They're like half sized cans.

go bright green or something...

id change it up. its not like it needs to look super pretty. like said above its going to get torn up in no time. I was going to do the same but then just painted it with tractor enamel, something strong in hopes it would hold up against the rocks.

well i have a change of plans. i broke a leaf spring yesterday, and found a nice set of dodge 1/2 ton with 4"'s of lift already arched in them for 100 bucks. so i put a cancel on the beadlocks and im getting new rear leafs, i bought an electric fan, and i bought a new saginaw steering pump
