painted wheels..

Found a little bit of rust on one of my cragars so I decided to sand them down and paint them.. The color is graphite metallic I think it looks pretty good. Tell me what you think, Thanks, Kenny

Maybe consider like a satin clear coat or something. Make it a little more durable

They look similar. I think they may be the same or brighter..

As for the tires, I love them. Cheap and work well for me. I don't do any hardcore offroading but they handle mud holes,hills,loose dirt, sand pretty well.

That's the cragar's silver.. They look pretty close to the same. I sanded the rust off the one wheel (dime sized patch,) put a rust stopper paint, primed, and three coats of graphite metallic wheel paint. Waiting for everything to dry to clear coat.

On the seams cause water/ salt is held there and thats what mades the paint buble and peel up. I will go out and take pics in a little bit.

Sealing it there will keep all the **** out of the face of the rim and not causing it to rott because of water and sand/ salt cant get trapped in there.

Valspar Tractor Paint works good, its oil based so it lays down flat with a brush
