Re: 2012 overland wheel paint

Well.....it was a fail! the satin carbon pearl was mixed up and sprayed on and it is a nice color but its not the right color. needless to say I am out the $200 on the paint and I don't feel like spraying the other 3 to match so I am just going to buy a new wheel from lkq like I should have before.

The pics below are before (original) , base black, satin carbon / cleared.

ps. don't care much about the over spray I am having new tires mounted on the wheels.

Re: 2012 overland wheel paint

Is it possible the paint shop mixed the color incorrectly? If I were you I would demand the paint shop to give you a refund.

I was thinking the same thing but my buddy deals with the paint supply house a lot and I don't want to burn any bridges. kind of a tight spot to be in

Re: 2012 overland wheel paint

Just looked it up... tech silver metallic could be the true color of your rim. I found a link, I hope if you buy it it'll work!

Tech Silver Metallic Clearcoat (Wheel) GSA-W Touch Up Paint for 2013 Dodge Dart

Here's satin carbon pearlcoat, looks.too dark to me...

I don't think you would be burning bridges. He simply mixed the wrong paint. He can simply mix the new paint. Especially for 200 and a wrong color wheel. You have already sank the money into that wheel, why not get it fixed the right way?
