Damn that works great. I am going to have to purchase some. What type of prep work is required? Does the wheel need stripping and cleaning before application as with all normal paint?

There is a clear coat that goes with it but i didnt get into that, i got a red scotch brite pad attachment for my drill and scuffed them up with it, it goes on super easy and drys really fast not to mention its self leveling so if ur rims are pitted it fills them up some, i have been poking around with it and have 2 out of 4 rims done we shall see how the latex paint holds up to michigan winter...

According to the Dupli-color website it's an acrylic enamel, which will be plenty good until some thing is able to get underneath it.

Link to product on Dupli-color Site: http://www.duplicolor.com/products/wheelCoating/

BTW, What color is it you used?

Default 2

2 cans ought to do it, I have done 2 wheels so far 3 coats each and have enough left to do 1 more wheel in the first can, your results may vary if you are doing the whole rim though i only did the faces of the rims and the outer beads.

Why does the top of the can look gold, the first pic of painted wheel looks gold and the finished wheel looks silver? Did you decide to change color or is it just the pic?

Default paint

The lighting in my garage consists of 2 65 watt bare bulbs, the pics of the painted rim are directly under one of em, the rest are in the middle-ish of my garage

I tried that stuff before, but I didn't have really good luck with it. It dried to fast and looked like bad overspray on my wheels. But yours turned out nice.

that stuff is awesome!! not just for wheels. I've done two shotguns with it. Its tuff as hell!! after 2 years, theres almost no wear at all. I did a Remington 870 pump with in the grey/silver and it looks very cool. I just washed it down good with dawn dish soap, and then warmed it up in low heat to dry the water. Its very durable. Soon I am going to do a SKS with it in silver.
