I'm thinking about painting mine, is there anything special that needs to be done to the wheels....besides cleaning them?I think this member did and I seem to recall one or two more,But I agree with KM here,most have painted theirs(including yours truly).here is a link to some pics of the one I think was powder coated
Painting actually works quite well and I found Krylon BBQ and Stove Paint to be quite durable,especially if black is what you are after.
I believe that Mike DeAngelo from this forum has powder coated his wheels and recently sold them. You may be able to see pictures of the work he did in his album. Give him a PM and I am sure he maybe able to give you some good information on doing the coating yourself. Mike is a good guy and willing to help out fellow riders when possible.Thinking of powder coating my factory rims in wet black. Anyone had experience with this?
