Painting Alloy wheels

495 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Laurence Fletcher
I have a set of teledials which I want to paint black before fitting to my car and just wanted to know what the best paint to use was? I am planning on getting them coated eventually but just want to paint them to begin with to ensure I like the look before shelling out for that (also Im somewhat broke!) So is there any special types of paint or primers I should use to make sure it stick to the alloy or will regular etch primer followeb by a coat of celulose be ok?

should be fine just make sure there clean and none of the silicone tyre shine type stuff remains, pannel wipe and scotch pad should do sort it
I got nice results with Hammerite, Smooth Silver, rattle cans, on a set of alloys which were beyond polishing, still looking good after 4 years.
