5 step for being awesome...

I painted the wheels a year ago and the paint is still like new :)

Step 1: Lift Your Car and Put It on Stands

Don't forget to open the screws with power handle before you lift the car.

Step 2: Clean Your Old Nasty Wheels

I found that sand-paper and terpentine dose the job better than any soap.

This is a very important step because if you won't clean well enough, the paint won't stick to the whee.

Step 3: Paint the Wheels With a Maaad Color (or Just Black)

Add texture and do whatever you think is cool.

Let the paint dry 15 min. between the 2-3 layers.

Step 4: At Least But Not Last, Coat the Paint With Varnish Spray

Make 1-2 layers of clear varnish coat to keep your paint for a long time.

May I suggest that you apply a primer coat before the colour coat - unless that paint is 2-in-1 type.

Thanks for the idea. My car has a disgusting, nasty rusted old steel wheel. I bought it used & I think they threw in a junkyard spare.
