Painting steel wheels.

I have a set of the stock gray steel wheels and was thinking about painting them black. I have access to a sandblaster. Was wondering if anyone has done it.

Painting steel wheels.

I have except I just took an angle grinder with a wire wheel to them and sprayed them. It has held up pretty well but if you have access to a sandblaster and time to to remount tires it would be worth it

The sandblaster sounds great if you intend on painting the entire wheel. Otherwise, I would only hand sand the front side and bomb can it. If you're really feeling froggy, throw a few coats of bomb gloss clear on.

A satin clear coat would serve the same purpose. Two coats of bomb can is thinner than most people think it is.
