Rustoleum Black Stock Rims
 
So, I decided to paint my rims instead of going out and buying new aftermarket ones. All I did was went to Home Depot and bought some of the Rustoleum spray on bed liner, went to Pep Boys and bought some wire brushes that attach to a drill and scraped off all the factory paint and finish then put about 4 coats of the Rustoleum stuff on it. So far I've only got the spare done to see what it looks like. I've attached some pix of the finished product here. Let me know what you guys think about it. Please, speak your mind to the fullest.

Thanks.

Looking good. I also plan to black out my stock wheels, I think I'm going to go the Plastidip route though.

I think just like normal paint, just with the ability to remove it much easier.

i did mine with Krylon but i only sanded the factory paint so the new paint had something to grab on to.. its been a year and half and still holding strong, plus you can always have touch up paint if you scratch them

Yeah I just sanded all the way down to the aluminum. Hopfully mine lasts just as long.
