Glad you did the rims and not the tires - I paited tires many years ago with what was supposed to be paint specifically made for that purpose - it was a disaster. Cracked, black bled thru.....
Nice touch!

A few coats of white primer, several coats of cool vanilla and more clear coats; I wish I could have had the paint baked on.

I decided last winter to do this when I saw how it looked on Chintzgirl's car.
She has not been here for quite a while.
they look great but the question i have is why did you not paint the whole wheel???? seems like a lot more trouble to mask off the caps than to paint the whole thing

great job

Nice. I've been cogitating on whether to go with the full moon covers or chrome wheels on my Cool Vanilla Cruser. I'm leaning towards chrome wheels, but seeing this makes the decision more difficult!

Seeing how the chrome side strips look on cool vanilla is a good deal fomr me, too - Thanks

NICE, Thought about doing my rims also. Red might look good, would match the tail light lens. Anyway looks clean, nice job.
