I just winged it, really. My roomate painted his entire Jeep one time, so he had some experience doing it. I just made sure I laid down plenty of everything, and did light, even coats (which is why it took me so long).

yeah true that. i heard all ya gotta do is ruff up the wheels, do like 3 coats of primer, sand one down, then do like 6 coats of paint and sand a few in between. then clear em. that would prob work the best i think.

That really does look nice. Picked up those wheels with tires for cheap and was going to do that with my True Blue, but just haven't pulled the trigger.

Very nice, a cheap change aswell. I'm thinking about painting mine black until I get some new ones in the near future.
