Wheel paint respray question

Hi guys,

I'm looking to change the colour of the wheels of my F4 from black to silver as I prefer the look of silver. The thought had crossed my mind of using spray paint but I'm concerned that I'll loose the nice finish. Can anyone tell me if this is possible or recommend what to use to achieve this.

Cheers,

James

idk if i'd use spray paint on such expensive wheels, but it's possible. you have to clean them really well. steel wool, white rags, simple green and acetone should do it. you have to be really commited as the acetone and steel wool will dull the paint a lot.

if anyone else has any other methods, please chime in! this is the best way i know of doing it.

Just make sure you scuff them up

or else you will have the paint flake off. Just leave them the way they are

Have them powder coated that would be the best finish and the longest lasting and of course the most money.

I had powercoat done at €30 a wheel, so might be as expensive as a can of spraypaint!! Only disadvantage is less choice of color.
