To paint them you either remove the paint with aircraft paint remover (you can buy at autoparts store) or you use a 1000grit to remove the slick final layer, and then you paint them with a spray can. Darker colors show the least imperfection when you paint them, but if you take your time you can do other colors as well.How would someone go about prepping/painting their stock wheels? How much would it cost to have it done elsewhere? :dunno:
To professionally "powdercoat" like factory finish, you would pay about $100 to $200 per wheel. I've only used Wheel Technologies and Wheels America for wheel repairs, in which they also repaint them factory finish. They charge about $100 to $125, I forget. But that is repair and refinish. They do aftermarket and stock wheels.
