Steel wheel thread

I am going to get my new tires mounted up on my steel 15" rims later tomorrow and since they are a little rusty I was gonna spray bomb them.

Anyone painted theirs a different color than black? I have been painting alot of little things with Duplicolor Gunmetal Grey wheel/rim paint lately and I love it and Im thinkin my Soft8 style rims would look real good this color.

Post up yours if you changed them from black.

Yes to the gun metal. That should look really good.

I thought about trying out that hammered metal paint.

I did my spare tonite and it looks great!! Going to get my new KM2's mounted up in the morning on all five rims and I will have pix later. I need to find a car wash still open so I can get some of this salt off the truck to get a good shot of them tho.
