If you're ever painting chrome don't forget to scuff them up with sand paper + a promoter before the primer.

Ive done over like 10 sets of rims that turned out great with no chipping or anything. U want to sand and scrap it first so there is no flaking from your rim. Then put two layers of primer in there and let it dry. Then i normally put three coats of paint letting them dry an hr in between..and after out about two coats of clear coat. It will turn out great. Word of advice dont ever rush. Make sure it is properly dried b4 u put another coat on. And make sure u sanded and scrapped and cleaned them good b4 u start

Just go to Menards/Lowes and get plastic dip i think thats whats it called i did mine on rsx and if you dont like it just power wash it off! You dont need to sand it down or anything just clean them up well and spray it!

I have a guy who will do powder coating for cheap. Biggest rim size tho I think he can do Is 17. You have to sand n strip everything down urself tho. Let me know if anyone is interested.
