Introduction: How I Painted My Rims

Step 1: Plan Think Gather

Previous owner color of choice

Step 2: Scrub or Depaint*

A little scrubing so the new paint will stick to them

I didnt really care i aint gona lie on the ground all day and admire my work thats why i didnt remove all the previous colors

Step 3: Adjust Your Spray Gun and Paint Evenly

Painted from the inside
I know maybe next year i'll paint them black and white like the image they look sweet

Step 4:

Painted first hand matte black

Step 5:

Somewhere the paint had run cos i panted at night with decent light
Next day i had to grind some paint and repaint

Step 6: Have a Beer

Finally painted the clear coat to shine and protect ;)

looks great, so what color is the paint, A metal paint, like the spray chrome??

also, In the photos, It looks like the clear coat really gave it a more reflective shine.. is that true or just in the photo

last question, as for the beer, Bottel or can?

don`t know my uncle uses it to paint MDF it was matte black thats why i added clear coat, i think its the same used to paint cars.
when wet the matte was pretty shiny but not after it dried out, so yes the clear coat is responsible for all the shine.
we used bottle but can is ok too.
