Has anyone spray painted wheels before? This will be my first time and ideally my last. I found some wheel primer at my local autozone and wanted to see if anyone had actually used that stuff with good feedback. Please chime in before i spray them with the wrong stuff!

Nay to green wheels!!!!! I say just the cage, wheels would be too much green. Look at sav's car, the orange cage and interior is just right.

No input on the primer. Just had to object.

I have been thinking Nay on the wheels too, as do all my friends and family.

Everything is currently drying, ill be stipping off all the newspaper and plastic in an hr or so, hopefully get the interior all sorted out before dark too. I am really excited to see how the silver/green combo looks inside.

I wish i had done this in a spray booth, spray painting sucks. I find it really difficult getting into alot of nicks and cranny's with a spray paint can that cant shoot upside down. Lesson learned: Spray that **** in a spray booth at all costs if possible.

or at least use SEM self etching primer and find a paint shop that will mix cans for you ... krylon, rustoleum, and other 'consumer' brands pale in comparison. I used PPG single stage in a can on my floor and aside from the really high wear areas at my heals/toes which have abrasive wear, it has held up without scratching or chipping

Looks good though!

VOLK TE37's are the only wheels on earth allowed to be green. Cage get's painted green, only.

Paint the splitter black.
