    I got a new steelie for my HF (since i bent one of my old ones) but its black and the rest of my wheels are bare metal. Is there an easy way to remove the paint? Also, are the bare metal wheels coated with something?

    ...or should I just go to walmart and get some of that wheel paint and paint them gunmental (the car is red)?

    -Thanks, Kai

    Your other wheels aren't bare metal, or they would rust like a motherfucker.

    Wire Wheel on a drill...on al of them...and then paint them all the same color. And I agree with Jeef...they aren't bare metal...or they'd be rust colored :D

    What are they rust coated with? I like the color that they are....but that one black one will look dumb with the 3 silver ones. Oh well, I'll just paint them gunmetal.

    Whats a good brand of paint to use on wheels?

    Dupicolor has special wheel paint. I would stick to a good name brand.
