lately ive been thinkin about painting the wheels on my bimmer.
i think black would look good but i want it to look real glossy so it doesnt look like just steel wheels on there. anyone know of a good paint to use on the basketweave wheel??? remember,, the centercap is plastic too so they will have to match each other when painted.

this is my ™

IMO satin black looks much better when it comes to black wheels and on basket weaves I would leave the lip silver and leave the center caps off, here's my moda sport wheels painted satin black by Duplicolor, they're for sale btw

lol...if u are real serious about having a glossy finish, check into powdercoating the wheels. I have an inside advantage, cuz my brother works at a shop where they do that stuff, but they come out REAL nice.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
