Looks good. The 'murdered-out" look is always nice to see for something different.

When I would paint wheels I would always use a high-temp clear for a final coat. The paint on the wheels always seemed to last better then. Could always go with a flat or semi-gloss too but that would hold more dirt, brake dust and grime I would think.

That paint holds up very well if you follow the prep correctly like Greasemonky did. I painted my old steelies with the graphite and they held up to wheeling and such. I like it so much I'm painting all my tube work with it

By the way looks wicked
