Black wheels work amazing on our Torch Red's but I think louvers look better color matched. Just my opinion.

Looks great, I'm debating on doing this with my wheels... If I don't like it I can simply peel it off without any damage right??

Thanks for you opinions.. i think i like the louvers red as well. I was getting a little bored while waiting for the paint to dry and i need to replace the adhesive that holds the louvers on anyways so i thought i'd paint them to. they are all ready pealing from where the screws go so it'll probably be coming off soon.

Phillies.. yes it just peels off .. it might be a little tougher in some spots but this stuff is pretty easy to deal with.

Thanks!! Ill take some up close pictures when I get home from work.. My tips would be: take the wheels off the car,put index cards between the tire and rim (it's a pain to peel off the tire if you over spray),take your time,put on a lot of coats.. I used 4 cans on the rims and louvers. keep the spray tip clean and keep shaking the can. the tip can get clogged up easily.. I just used a rag with a little brake cleaner and wiped it. oh and give the can a quick spray away from the rim before you start. it sometimes came out clumpy.

Ah, that explains how your rims came out as good as they have seemed to.

Yeah, +1 on the close-ups.

I'm thinking about doing my rims soon. To do the bolts did you just spray over them after you put it on or did you spray over the whole wheel one last time? I just thought if you only sprayed over the area with the bolts it would make an uneven finish for the rest of the wheel. Sorry if I'm not really making sense, I don't know how to explain it.

i put the wheels back on and then sprayed them. i didn't do the whole wheel i just focus on the lug nut area. it came out even.
