Try Plasti-Dip. I've done quite a few sets including my own. Here's a few pics

Re: Painting Rims

Ive seen people talk about Plasti-Dip i have a set of chrome wheels that I was thinking about getting powder coated but they want $125 a wheel to do this. Does the plasti-dip wash off? and how do you apply it to chrome wheels?

It won't wash off unless you sit on it with a pressure washer, and it's pretty much just like spray paint, just clean the wheel with rubbing alcohol (it dries fast),mask off what you don't won't sprayed and spray it, you probably want to 4-5 coats maybe 3-4 , just make sure the first couple of coats are the heavier coats. Hope this helped good luck

Re: Painting Rims

Plasti-Dip is OK and cheap but it won't be glossy unless you buy the glossifier. So if you want a matte black look go with Plasti-Dip. If you want a gloss black I would suggest the following..

1. Clean the rims spotless
2. Sand the rims
3. Use Duplicolor Black Primer (2 Coats)
4. Use Duplicolor High Performance Black Paint (3 Coats)
5. Use Duplicolor Clear Coat (3 Coats)

Let each coat dry for 10-15 minutes before applying another coat. Put Playing cards or flash cards inbetween the rim and the tire to ovoid overspray on the tire.

Should come out looking great.
