Don't paint them as they will look cheap. The paint cannot hold up and if you ever put a tire machine on them the paint will scratch right off. Have you thought about powder coating them? It's normally about $50 to $60 per wheel and looks great. Holds up real good, too.

paint only scratches off if the paint is done poorly, and the wheel isnt prepped correctly.. powder coating is another good option, however ive never seen a powder coated set of wheels that looks as nice, and are as easy to maintain as painted..

If they are the plastic 300c clad wheels, I don't think you can Powder Coat plastic.

First, I didn't know they were plastic so I guess that powedercoating is out.

But sssrt8, I do have to say if you go to a real good powdercoating company you would not believe the outcome. Just as good as any paint but a lot more durable. I could see painted wheels for show, but for everyday use I just don't see paint holding up.

Does anyone have photos of painted wheels? Not powdercoated but painted?
