I painted my factroy 15" 99 wheels Black for the winter. I left the center part chrome and I'm ussing the chrome lug nuts to make it less bland. I did this so my car will still look different( a little racey) for the winter. I have to repair my rims since they have so many curb marks so I figured I'd do it over the winter and put my factory wheels on. I'll have picture soon since they go on tommorro.

putting them on tonight after oil change and timming advance. I'm going from 17*-19*. I used high temp paint so it will be stronger. I tried gunmetal car paint and it peeled of right away.

wheels on and It looks like a real hot rod. I'll take some pics in the light and post asap. I didn't remember how good it felt to hit a bump with a good sized tire. I don't have to cry when I hit a pot hole any more. (until the old wheels get fixed) I'm almost concidering getting a set of sport wheels and having them powder coated black with a machined lip and chrome center. I think it would be a nice middle ground. Does any body know what the widest and lowest tire I can put on a 16" sport wheel.

I used Black 500* high temp paint for it's ceramic composite. I would recommend a good sanding of the wheels. The first time I tried it with car paint and it wouldn't stick good. so I sanded it and used the high temp. now it stuck pretty good but I hit one with the lug wrench and it chipped.

The car looks mean as hell now. but I will put my 17" wheels back as soon as I fix up the scratches. I took pics I try to post tommorro.

thats what I did to my rims

I gunmetaled them using special wheel paint from an auto parts store. I even sanded off most of the curb marks with 180 grit and I did 3 coats sanding with 400 grit in between. it turned out really nice and adds a nicer look to your car

you can check out some pics on the Northwestnissans website-go to the general forum then look for shownshine pitures posted by a member named AaronS13
