I really like what you did with your wheels. I stripped and sanded mine. Trying to decide on 2 things before I prime them. Did you use flat or semigloss black before you clear coated them? Did you paint the dimples between the lug holes, or just the lug receptacles?

Haven't done my rims (those rims all look great)....but did my flares. Used steel wool, but I also used some fine grit sandpaper too. Make sure that you clean them well. I used soap and water several times. I did mine about 2 months ago. I have had 2 chips since, but I just hit it again. It really makes a difference. I have some picks of mine on my page.

I used Talstrip to clean mine up then used Satin black Wheel paint on canyon rims. Popped the center out and left it shiny. with it and new chrome lug nuts I really like the look
Hey Y'all! Watch this! I saw it in a movie once!

I've always liked the stock canyon wheels on bigger tires. Like them even better painted black. Nice job!!

Nice write-up, Phrankoff! Followed your directions and got 5 black wheels in less than 4 hours to include the time for prep. Too easy!

I had a ton of oxidation on mine so I had to completely strip off the clear coat, polish the aluminum, then paint the inserts. I painted the the inside and the inserts black. My jeep is black so it looks pretty bad ass all together.
