Guys, my wheels for some reason are starting to flake a lil and I have no idea why being they have yet to ever be curbed. I called a couple shops around here to find out what it would be to just strip and repaint the wheels both stock and in black and they wanted as much as $1000 for the set. The more I think about it, it doesnt look very hard to do and I'm thinking of doing them myself. Has anyone else done this ??

I already know I'm gonna need some aircraft paint stripper to get the clear and layer of chipped paint up. What kinda steps should I take to do this ?? Should I use Caliper paint ?? Also I plan to leave the rim edge silver in color to break up the black a lil. What kinda tape should I use to mask off what I want to leave silver.

Also Please post pics.

Thanks guys

it is not paint. it is powdercoat....

powdercoating should not flake off.... but if you were to paint them they would have to be stripped totally....... all the way down. then epoxy primered, then a couple layers of paint. then clearcoated....

it probably wont be hard but it will take a while.........
