Question Can Anyone Help Me On Painting My Stock Rims?

I Have Been Thinking It Over, And Have Decided To Go With The Diy Paint Job For My Stock Rims. Basically, Ill Save Some Money, And I Can Get The "color Of My Choice." So If You Guys Have Any Info On Sand Paper/ Paints, Or Even Any Pics Of Black Rexs With Different Colored Rims Id Really Appreciate It! :d

I would say to use a 320 grit sand paper and then go over them with a red scotch pad, check with your local paint supply store and see what they recomend since rims tend to take alot of abuse, I say Sikkens autocryl I use Sikkens at work and it is pretty good stuff. ( I work in a body shop) good luck!

Hey man thanks for the advice. I'm still not sure what color to go with, but I'm thinkin that I like the gun metal color would look good. I've got a black rex and I've always liked the stealth look. I used to have a black civic and my brother in law painted the rims for me. It looked real good. But I'm still not sure what color i want. Thanks again.
