duplicolor wheel paint. they need to be cleared but i had time on my hands and extra paint from some volvo wheels i refinished a while back. i had extra wheels and they were a little dull so. the reason i did it was because the silver 15 holes were too plain and i wanted the blacked out look even in the winter. is it worth it? depends on you i think it is because they are plain cheap stock 15 holes so it wasnt worth getting them powder coated so as a cheap alternative painting is the way to go.

I was planning on doing this awhile back since mine have the clearcoat peeling. Already bought some duplicolor paint too, but just didn't think it would look good. Seeing how good yours turned out just put this back on my list.
