I painted my stock 06 wheels black Saturday and thought I would share a pic of how the car looks now.. Next is tinting the tail lights, just trying to decide if I want to black out tint or just a medium tint on them. Also, going to paint the mirrors body color at some point. As for now, here's the latest look. I love it. :thumbup::D

"Dupli-Color High Performance Wheel Paint" - it's a rattle can I got from O'Reilly's. We did my friends s2000 the same way and it still looks good and same as the day we did it and it's been about a year. It really turns out looking good once it's all done and dry.

Did you clear coat them? I'm looking to pick up some cheep alloys for the winter and do them in the duplicator graphite and am wondering if I should clear coat them for durability

I did not clear them, it's a flat black wheel paint so I just used it how it is.. We did a friend of mines car about a year ago and they still look good

I am tempted to spray my new wheels from bronze to black, as i wanted black but they didn't have them :(

But they are brand new wheels and i can't bring myself to do it
You could plastidip them. It is a lot more durable than paint and you don't have to do as much prep work. Plus if you don't like it, you can always remove it.

Plasti-Dip is cool, we did some chrome emblems with that to make them black and it was really easy and looked good when it was done. (We used the spray)
