    I plan to paint my stock wheels black once the Terra Grapplers get here. For those of you who have painted yours how about an update on the durability and which paint you used. Any regrets?

    I used regular (not the wheelpaint) Duplicolor Satin from a rattle can in August and it came out looking great.

    Only damage I've seen was rash from off roading- Cleaning and regular wear have not affected them that I have noticed.

    i didnt go with the typical rattle can spray paint

    i bought a quart can of the stuff...and then put it into a paint gun powered by an air compressor and sprayed my wheels that way
