Post Help: Does anyone know how to paint rims?

I want to paint my RS rims white...Does anyone have any experience with this who can guide me? Maybe there is a link where I can find instructions on painting/powder-coating rims? Please help. Thank you!

I got mine painted white and speaking from experience---DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!. If I had to do it all over again, I would have had them powder coated. Believe me when I tell you that the first time you change your tires you are going to regret it ( I change my tires every four months due to racing). No matter what machine is used, they all scratched the lips of my tires. Powder coating is the only way in my opinion.

Just my 2-Scu.

Powdercoat is the only way to go. Take off the tires, valve and balance weights. The powdercoater should sandblast for you. The last set of wheels I did cost $130. They will even do cu$tom color$ matching.

bill harvey has white rims
check out drive.to/yourlimits the NESIC homepage, im sure there are pics of them somewhere
and im pretty sure he got them powder coated... they look good, but IMO they are not the best style of rim to be painted white.
