UPDATE: so due to hatorade and the orange it has been repainted to red looks better IMO. I actually like it quite a bit!

all of these 06/07 wheels look great. i wanted to paint mine for my 2011 for the winter but with all the rash on them, it's probably too much work to prep them and it's WAY too cold to paint now.

What kind of degreaser would everyone recommend? I have purple power but it says NOT to use it on rims, or does it really not matter since the affected area is just going to be washed off and sanded anyway?

Just put my v7 wheels on, so much lighter than the the standard wheels and the re002's seem to be quieter than the re001's.

It's been done but on a red car. I'll see if I can find the thread.

Okay couldn't find the red car but did find this.

A few more pics in the thread above. Think I'm gonna do this for my DGM but I'll go something closer to a black chrome or hyperblack.
