Default Changing Wheel Color

So after putting on new tires my wheels got a some nicks around the lug nuts so I was thinking of re-painting them or changing the color to Silver, Gold, Gun Metal but not sure. So hence the advice needed. I attempted to do this in Microsoft Paint but came out crappy. Can anyone Photoshop these colors so I can get an idea. And also give me some feedback.

Alan - I have not gotten any quotes for painting or powder coating as yet. You know how much they normally charge for a job like this? I was thinking about doing it myself if the cost is too high and if I f**k them up then I can go pay to get them done.

yeah PC would probally be around 50,

I would have someone else paint them ...

By the time you purchase cans of paint, sand paper and clear coat , the paint shop could have the wheels done with in no time.

the only thing your wasting is your own time on the weekends to take the time to sand the spokes down and clean them well.

Then tape them up , prep them , primer all spokes and wait for them to dry.

paint them waiting for them to dry and clear coat them.

Alot of members have gone this route but the clearcoat in the can only last so long VS PPG clearcoat that the shop uses.

I got a quote for $60 per wheel for Powder Coating, but add in the extra cost of having the tires removed then mounted and balanced again extra $100 or so I might go the paint route. Gonna get a quote on that tmrw.

So I did my wheels this weekend. Sanded them down then 3 coats of Sandable Primer, then sanded with 320 grit. Followed by 5 coats of Graphite/Gun Metal and then 4 coats of clear. All products were from Rustoleum, my Auto Zone did not have Dupli Color. I think them came out pretty good. I have not put them on the car as yet but here is a shot of them.
