Yea, I removed them, cleaned them with sonax full effect wheel cleaner, scrubbed them hard to get everything off. Then i washed with a mild detergent and rinsed well. Dried, took them in the garage and sanded them down enough to rough up the surface, cleaned with alcohol pads and let dry again then sprayed! Theres one on the jeep and it looks awesome!

lol well its been a long morning, found out about a death in the family, so in my bad mood/being pretty pissed off I decided to just take them off. It made it eaiser to clean the inner barrel and paint the insides of the wheels, i just broke a tire iron on one lug that wouldnt come off haha

Got it done a few hours ago, no issues except for a badly jammed lug that I did some damage to trying to get it off, and I snapped my tire iron in half. Heres the pics

I can't wait to see it with a good coat of tire shine, it all came off on my hands when I was taking the wheels on and off and I didn't want to spray it back on when the wheels were still drying, so tomorrow it'll get a bath, but it looks so mean, can't wait to se it with new tires!
