Default Question about painting Sport Edition A7 Rims from Tire Rack

I want to paint these in black and was wondering if anyone knows what material they are made out of? Is it safe to paint any type of materials wheels with the Duplicolor wheel paint.

Yah, you can paint anything.

Just rough up the surface first to make sure the primer adheres to it. Then just take your time and be careful.

You can PM acquacow too. Or look for his thread.

it's easy, just make sure you're working in an environment with the proper temperature settings since it's cold out.

I'd store the wheels & cans of paint inside the house for a day or 2, then you'd be ok using portable heaters in the cold garage.

EDIT: maybe not a good idea because the wheels will sweat/fog up going from warm to cold.
