When I almost thought these wheels were toast... NICE!!!
So I acquired these wheels from my sister actually who bought them for her IS mannnyyy years ago. Well she had them bagged and boxed up and asked me if I could use them, if so take em! Hell yea! Lol why not! Opened them up, and the wheels looked like hell. I washed them up and put them on along with all my suspension and all, and you know what, they still made the car look much better, but up close you'd see. Check it out.
Then, being confident in my spraying skills, I thought I'd give it a try, and ended up spraying them, and honesty, didn't look to bad, but looked cheap, too cheap, wasn't my bag of tricks it ruined the class of the wheel for sure. Take a look below: (sorry I really don't know why it's only letting me post one photo per message it's weird, I try all 5 only the first one shows up)

I was glad I took the chance at it and removed the paint because now I got to keep the machine finished face look, which the paint filled in. I clear coated one after all this was done with a wheel clear coat, came out looking like trash IMO, right thing to do would be powder coating them with clear, but even then I'd lose this finish. All in all I couldn't have been any happier, they made my car go from looking alright, because the cars clean, but wheels looked under the radar trash, to new! Hope you guys enjoy. Sorry about the posts being this way I really din know what is happening.
Unfortunately the only thing that I wasn't able to do was the curb rash on one of the passenger wheels, (it's pretty bad too) and the bend in one of them too
any pics on the car? if you dont like it , as a last resort you can plastidip them
Lol hang on!!! Wasn't done! Lol!!!! But thanks man! You know what, that was my next solution if the refinishing ended up destroying the wheels
I'll take a few photo's of them on the car and all tonight and post them by tonight k.
