just used krylon.
i first used a tar and wax degreaser wiped it off then sanded with 600 then 800 really well and sprayed. im surprised how well the paint has adhered to the wheel.

In a year or two I might just do this same thing to my wheels. I really like that! Can't wait to see the finished result.

crappy weather today i couldn't wait to take off the tape.
u can see i taped too far inwards to the center of the wheel on the upper left side of the wheel in this picture but thats an easy fix which ill do next time its nice outside. If i taped too far outward that would of been a big problem though so im glad i didn't do that haha
other than that one small spot, the wheel is fine
