your rims are powder coated, i believe those red and blue lines are paint. should come off real good, just dont use sandpaper. use a soft cloth, and dont rush the job.

I honestly don't know. Are the rims powdercoated? Or just painted?

yeah they are steel rims so they must be powdercoated?

maybe i'll swing by a friends shop and get a quote on some tint and ask him as well.
