seriously, there are a lot of ways to paint steelies that looks really good. just remember overspray on your tires looks like trash.

paint em!!!! you can also buy the lips that clip on like hubcaps and they will look like some aftermarket lightweight racing wheels

this is the lip, found in autozone for about $11 each total about $44


^^^ thats a real lip not the one from autozone but they will look something like these (not as good but atleast better than your stockies

there are so many options when it comes to color selection you got to get creative. I cant wait to see what combination you come up with.

If I was going to paint them any color other than black, I'd go with silver/grey and put a set of trim rings on the wheels. I think painting them gold will look "cheap" but that's just me.

Why did you paint the wheels with tires on them without masking?

I'd say do it, do it the right way though.

How about painting them white? Or pink? I painted mine flat black but if I had a black car I would've painted them flat white.

straiiiight. was slightly concerned for a moment. I just know that stuff like that doesnt mix with rubber too well and especially on the sidewalls...

not that I see it bursting into flames or anything, but maybe accelerated dry rot and just general decomp.

ive painted many many things with can paint friend.

ive used .99cent paint look like $8 dupli color cans.

my first cb i did alot of experimenting.

its all in the prep work remember that, and take that extra min to tape up the rite way, patience is also key along with a brain and common sense.

oh believe me I am fully aware of the value of proper prep work. I've been doing collision repair for almost 8 years. nothing pisses me off more than busting my ass on getting everything right then having the painter's bitch bojangle the prep work. needless to say he didnt keep his job long after customers began pointing out the overspray lol.
