    I painted mine with Rustoluem graphite wheel paint, which is what I have used on my previous cars without any issues. I did not do what others have done with sanding and priming, I just cleaned them off with simple green, masked off the tire and sprayed away. I did this, maybe, back in April or May and have gone on two light trails and normal daily driving and have not yet needed to touch them up.

    Of course this will vary for different people, but I am mainly just trying describe my own personal experience.

    I've been wondering the exact same thing. I've got the same wheels as you, truck's Black Sand Pearl too, seen it looks good on MGM but I haven't seen it on BSP trucks. Flat, Semi-Gloss, what the hell are people using? I'll be keeping an eye here too now haha
