Has any one painted canyon rims?

If so could you throw me up a pic of the end result? Looking for black or gunmetal.

I have canyon wheels too. I'd like to see some pics as well. Although, if I decide I want black wheels, I'll probably buy soft 8s and keep my canyons stock.

I am pretty sure they have a Teflon coating. I imagine this needs to be removed before regular sanding/cleaning before painting.

If I remember right, a guy on this forum said using break cleaner will aid in its removal.

It's just clearcoat with wheel paint in the pockets. I redid this one a few months ago and never got around to the other 4. Now I have new wheels and will be restoring all 5 to original stock buy stripping them down to bare aluminum, repainting the pockets and clearcoating. To strip, I used kleen paint remover from home depot.

I am seriously thinking about painted the windows and inside black, while leaving the machined surface alone. I was also debating doing just the opposite. painting the surface dark, and the windows and inside bright silver....

Anyone with pics of either of these? I can't be the only one to have this idea.

The pockets are not machined. They are a rough concrete looking surface and not shiny at all. The paint they use stock smooths this part out its put on so thick.

On one of my sets of Canyons I did the insides black and left the machined surface clear. Way different effect and have had a lot of positive comments on the them, like "wow, those are cool! Are they custom?"

Sorry, no pics available.

Stock rims from my 2006 LJ. Used Rustoleum black bed liner. It was a breeze. Took the wheels off the Jeep, washed them, lightly sanded them, taped off the tire, primed them, and then shot 'em with the bed liner. (I even painted the clip on weights!) I had some left over so I blacked out the grill while I was done. The whole project ran me less than $30. I really like the look and think it will be as close to bullet proof as painted rims will get. More so than regular paint.

The picture in post #7 is with charcoal in the pockets to give you an idea on leaving the machined finish bare. It was a pain to mask since I couldn't find any good detailing tape local. They only had .5" which was too thick to turn the corners so I had to razor down the middle of the roll.

Perchance does anyone know the back spacing on these? I was wondering if they would work well with 33 x 12.5 tires with a 3.5 inch lift. Hope I am not hijacking your thread

After seeing this I wished I kept my Canyons and painted them. They look awesome.
