Finally got around to painting my wheelzz

Just painting my wheels after debating to do it for such a long time...i plastidipped them without taking the wheels off and used multiple light coats to prevent drips and sags...sorry about the picture quality...i'll be uploading more pics later...let me know what you guys think!

Re: Finally got around to painting my wheelzz

^ im fine with the 18's...i had the nonpolished alum wheels and they weren't too bad. but when i painted them all black, they look a lot better on the car (IMHO). i love the overland wheels too, but i think if i had them, i'd still paint them black. i've seen a member here who painted their overland wheels black and it looks great. for now i'm happy with the 18's. i'll be taking better pictures over the weekend when i get down and dirty washing and claying the car and cleaning the wheels.

I used thick gift wrapping paper. Instead of balling it up and stuffing it between the spokes, what I did was I laid it over the opening between the spokes and pushed it through. When all of the paper was through the opening, I just opened it back up and covered as much surface area of the rotors and calipers as I could. It's a lot better than stuffing the openings between the spokes with crumpled paper because its more uniform and its more stable---i didnt even have to use tape to hold it in place. As for the tires, I used blue painter's tape...did the trick just fine.

Ok now I am really confused lol. Laid paper over the spokes and pushed it through? So you mean one piece per wheel opening? Also did you paint the inner hub? Have any close up pics?

lol...no you understood it correctly....one piece per wheel opening. i taped the lugs and the chrome jeep circle in the middle. I didnt paint the inner hub and i didnt paint the inside of the rim seeing as though you don't really see it anyway...i'll be posting more pictures after the weekend once i get it washed
