    I decided to change the color of wheels , Silver one didn't look that good. Instead of changing alloy wheels I wanted to give a shot on spraying wheels!

    I started off with taking the wheels out and cleaning them inside out.

    Also Sprayed break calipers with same high temp Red paint.

    I bought 2 Cans of High Temp Engine enamel for the wheels ,Matt Black.

    Gave about 3-4 coates of the paint and looks pretty good.

    Do let me know how do you feel about this

    not to sure whats that is, but if you use the foam one or spray one, you can put it on the wheels after washing them. watch them shine. you wont need it now but after a while the paint starts to fade so i do this now. looks way better!! ill take a pic after i wash the car and shine them.
