The choice is ultimately yours and red wheels look ok on some cars and not so much on others. I would recommend taking a good side shot of your car and trying out ideas with Paint.NET or one of many other photo/image modifying programs.

Any paint will chip. If it is a huge concern you can buy it in pints or quarts and mix it yourself adding in some flex agent and spray it on using a compressor and spray gun to reduce the chance of chipping.


I wouldn't worry about it overmuch, vehicle manufacturers have been spray painting wheels since the beginning and they hold up fairly well these days.

Sand it first with 800 grit. Just enough to take off the smoothness. The paint will stick a lot better to the rim. First coat should be a light one, then let that dry. Finally, spray the rest on.

Using 800 will leave sand scratches, you can use 800 but need to sand back over it with something finer like 1000 or so. I paint cars for a living lol just helping out.

Well, I just figured that the guys on West Coast Customs knew what they were doing when they used 800 grit for their car. Or maybe those guys are wrong too. I also used 800 for mine and they came out perfect as well. Lol

I just read my post back to myself and I kinda sounded like I was being a di&k. Not at all how I wanted to sound. I was just meaning that they said when rims were already painted and had clear coat already, to just scratch the surface of the clear coat enough for the paint to stick to the surface. They also stated that they did that with 800 grit. The very next week I painted my rims and used the same grit before I painted them. They came out perfect. I am aware that you use a fine grit for painting the car, however, I thought that you use a rougher grit for rims for it to stay on better. If I am wrong, that's fine. I just thought that I would copy the same procedure that West Coast Customs used.

Sorry for the long post...

As it turns out, we were both right. Just in different stages. This link should help clarify.
