Painting alumn. Wheels
I've got a 99 Silverado Z71 with the 16" aluminum wheels that came with the truck. Some of the clear coat is coming off and I want to make it look better so I've decided to paint most of each wheel to match the color of the truck (gold). I'm not sure how to do this so it will last. Any suggestions?

I think Duplacolor has diy paint for wheels.

nice idea but what happens when ya clean them? i have a better answer for ya that holds up well, use krylon hammer finish, it looks like tool box coating, thye have black silver bronze, i use the silver and black alot, its good stuff and cleans up well,

the 1st question you need to anwser is " how much $ am i willing to invest on this?" and that will layout your possible options and effect the longevity of the finish.
you could get them powdercoated, have a shop paint them, or diy......but i would advise against strippping them down to bare aluminum or you'll need to etch prime them, then primer, paint, clear....and as far as spay bombs go, you get what you pay for (a $5 job might look good, but for how long)03 Silverado 1500
