Agreed. Rattle can paint will not hold up very long in those conditions."B67FSTB" said:First , I wouldn't do that!
If I would do this , use a grade 240 or higher sanding paper so you don't have any "rubbing marks" after the paintjob.
I would bring them to a body shop for paint because paint with hardener and thinner is much stronger and last longer against the road elements.
Paint from a spraycan isn't strong structual wise.
Just curious, what backspacing did you go with on the CL-205's?"Tims65" said:I've painted 2 sets of wheels with rattle can paint and have had no issues. I painted a set of 15X7 American Racing Torq-Thrust D's and the paint was still good 10 years later when I sold them a bought some American Racing CL-205's which I promptly painted.
As for painting them, I just cleaned them with a degreaser, primed them (rattle can) and painted them with an enamel spray paint. I considered using a high temperature paint, like an engine enamel, but I sprayed my original AR Torq-Thrust D's in a similar fashion over 14 years ago and they have held up fine.
