So I posted this in the main area of wheels and tires without a reply so I figured I'd try it in here.

I am picking up some enkei rs-7 wheels this week and I want to paint them completely black.

They currently have a polished rim on them.

Am I going to do any harm if I sand the polished part of the rim? or should I just leave it and paint over everything without sanding.

I just don't want to mess up these rims while in the process of painting them.

You are going to want to rough/scuff any area you are going to paint to give the paint something to bond to. Most likely though the polished area is clear coated, not just bare polished aluminum. If it is bare polished aluminum though you might want to consider scuffing it, hitting with primer, scuff the primer and the rest of the wheel, then spray your black and then coat with clear while the the black is still tacky.

I am going to pull the tires off and replace them so should I do a little over spray into the tire area? Just to make sure I hit everything?

Hitting the tire area will help seal the paint on to the wheel better. If you have the tires off then I would recommend doing this. It will help prevent any pealing from the bead lip.

please mount this asap. I've actually been digging through this thread to choose a gold paint for the same wheel. I was trying to decide between either the brass color that theDon247 used or the gold that I had use on my car. Yours may seal the deal though.

The Paint is Rustoleum Black Night Metallic. Pics are fresh as of 20 min. ago.





Washed with dawn type soap, scuffed up with very fine steel wool, then sprayed em with etching primer, paint, then coated with clear.

Yup! You don't have to sand all the paint off, just sand out the runs and then give the rest a light scuff.

To avoid runs, hold the can farther away or move it faster. This will let you spray lighter coats.

Wink Kinda OT...

Been browsing this thread since yesterday, lots of good work and creativity here.. Caught up on it this morning and then went over to BBC and this caught my attention:

Paint chemicals 'may harm sperm'

Men regularly exposed to chemicals found in paint may be more prone to fertility problems, research suggests.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7416405.stm

Careful guys ;-)

I definitely think I was moving too slow last night.

here's a pick so far. not quite the gold I was thinking. I was hoping for something more like mooneyes13. Using the duplicolor universal gold engine enamel. I'll take a picture this weekend in daylight and see how it looks. I think the flash on the camera made it a lot more vibrant.



edit: in normal light, it does look like the color that mooneyes13 used.
