    Wanted to give thanks to all the TW members who have put threads on here on how to paint stock rims. I did the reasearch and finally took the time to try it out.

    Scuffed rims with all purpose 100 grit sandpaper, 3 coats of rustoleum metal primer, 3 coats of flat black rustoleum engine paint.

    Thanks again you guys I really like the way they turned out and saved me the money of buying new rims.
