Default A wheel question

I have been thinking about doing this to my wheels for a while now. http://www.regalgs.org/forum/viewtop...painted+wheels My question is what kind of paint would you use. And how do you think it would look on my bonneville.

Im getting ready to do this....there are a few options

If rims are in poor condition:
get the rims stripped of the clear and then powdercoat them, and then reclear them

IF you rims are in good condition then:
mask off all the parts you dont want paint, then you can get wheel paint, and then clear

Duplicolor makes both the paint and the clearcoat specifically for wheels



also....small Side Note...can you check your RPO codes for the H4U (SLE) Package??

I was planning on resurfacing some ghetto golds for my future 94. Since you said you were getting ready to do this...have you looked into typical powdercoating prices? I know powdercoating is probably the best and most durable option, but I wonder how well the wheel paint would hold up.
