    Hey guys,
    I've decided to hold off on buying new wheels and decide to keep my steel ones and paint them black. Does anyone know what paint would be the best to paint them or have any suggestions for me.

    I want to say I've seen a DIY thread on it, but couldn't find it again

    Prep is KEY...Duplicolor is an awesome product-THe wheel paint is good-but I think it's limited to matte only. The regular duplicolor is good product too-but they might wear quick...
