I looked all over this place they call a town for some rattle can paint. I was hoping to spray my wheels but that color can't be found around here. They have plenty of camo and bright orange lol. Anybody seen this paint anywhere?

yeah they make gun metal, but as with any paint, chips are gonna happen the only way to avoid it is powder coat

right..chips i'm ok with as they're just expected with rocks and such - i just imagine scrubbing the wheels down and this paint-for-plastics rubbing off. i could just be paranoid though. :D

Duplicolor has some gunmetal paint, and yea get some good metal primer then you can use whatever paint. Just put a lot of clear on and it should really help to protect against chips.

dude rustoleum makes a hammered charcoal black metallic paint that passes as gunmetal. i used it on my oem mazda enkeis and it looked pretty sweet.

ambitious...but rubbish
I got some gunmetal paint on the rotas I got today:D

I saw special wheel paint on truck tv, pretty sure it was dupli-color, they have gunmetal, bronze, and gold + clear coat.

i like to spray the clear while the other paint is still sticky... IMO, it bonds better.. watch out for runs though
