Re: Painting stock rims

i did it, just make sure u do all four at once. i did mine on different days so the weather had a huge role in how the end product stood up to the test of time. but it was cool for a while, now they are peeling though. im gonna do them again. scotch brite pad and air grinder here i come. i also tinted my tail lights with spray tint, that faded to but looked so cool. im gonna do that again and get projectors for the headlights. love that dark horse look/

Re: Painting stock rims

idk black or dark gray like gun metal but that might be hard to do. by the way br, how does your vibrant muffler sound. I was thinking of doing a megan m-gt muffler with 2.5 inch piping

Re: Painting stock rims

oh man sounds beautiful. kinda like a vr6 vw motor at lower r's then really deep ''honda'' tone at vtec. domestic kids used to give me props. my advice use some kinda resonator and a larger volume muffler. vibrant is cheap and nice, 8 years old still shines. titanium mufflers must sound really cool

Re: Painting stock rims

use gloss paint for metal, they will never peel, just dont go so close with the power washer,
i think thats the best thing to do because when you need your tires changed, the device useally marks the rims if you have normal spray paint on them, but with gloss it dont mark them

Re: Painting stock rims

it handles really well, i kinda want to drive a base to see how much of a difference there is. Think it would sound nice with a megan muffler and either 2 1/2 or 2 1/4 piping from the cat on back?

Re: Painting stock rims

Hopefully this isnt seen as thread jacking but I was contemplating painting my stock rims black. Does anyone know if that will look good with a black lude? I just dont wanna appear to be rolling on doughnuts. I know it looks great on most other colors but what do you guys think?

Re: Painting stock rims

Its all in the prep work man. Good prep will ensure an awesome paint job! I personally am actually in the process of repainting mine this week( I originally painted them back in June). I have em stripped down, just gotta paint on Thursday.

My advice to you is to take your time while prepping. If you sand them down good and use prep wipes to ensure that they are clean your paint will last a good while( mine would have lasted well over a year if I didn't want to re-paint while I have the wheels off...). Dupli-color wheel paint and clear is the ****. That stuff hold really good if you prep and prime them well. I had some minor chips from my dumb ass handling them before they cured up after I painted them last June, the chips never got bigger or spread. I was really impressed, I thought I would have to repaint them for sure within a few months. But I was very happily proved wrong


edit: And if you have to strip them this **** is amazoring!
I personally just sanded them down when I first painted them. But this re-do required stripping the old paint.

Re: Painting stock rims

well said lazer, anything you so in life is all about prep work. YEAH do the "dark horse look"! if you are able to tape a circle to mask that lip it would be dope but might not as easy as said. look into after market rims for the summer! make that lude ur own ya know!
