There was a member here who painted his wheels - 'micallef'

Sand
Primer
Paint
Clear

Just not sure how many coats of each, but if I had to guess;

1-2 coats of primer, 3 coats of paint, 1-2 coats of clear.

i saw his DIY was just concerned about the chrome clad wheels i have. i was going to save up for the srt reps but i think with in the next year to year and half my kid or wife will get the jeep and SRT reps will be a waste.

Just sand them down. They'll look the same as his after he sanded his down.

Let's say you were to do this. What color would you go for?

Not true. Keep the stocks and sell the reps later. SOmeone will always be willing to buy the SRT wheels, reps or origionals

Now I may be wrong but doesnt the chrome cladding come off? I would think it would be easier to paint the bare wheel rather then the chrome clad part its self? Or as another option if it does come off easily you couod always have the cladding powder coated. Just I thought....
