Default Bronze RS 6 spoke

Just picked up some RS wheels for my winter setup. I refinished them with some Duplicolor paint and a lot of prep. Overall I think they came out ok. Some imperfections in the paint that I was too lazy to wet sand out but I am happy as they are a winter set. Tires are Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D. Check out the pics.


Materials


The wheels were in overall good shape. 10 yrs of brake dust in the corners and some minor curb rash to get rid of.


The rim sanded down. I was going to bondo the curb rash but it wasn't so bad so instead I just sanded it down as much as possible.


Primed. I used black filler primer because I wanted the finish to be very dark. After I saw them like this I almost wanted to paint them flat black.


Overall I like the finish. Real Nice in the sun.

Thanks. I am loving them right now. Plus it is the first winter I am on dedicated snow tires. Now I can't wait to put some Swift Sport springs to get that drop and get out some of the body roll.
