duplicolor sells wheel specific paints... thats your best bet if youre going to paint them white...


otherwise they make a van and truck paint that holds up pretty well too...

IF your SHO does not smell like burning oil, brakes, or clutch... Its probably broken... waiting to be fixed.

Yeah most use the duplicolor wheel paint or any high heat paint, most about painting wheels has been covered, so try a search on the forum and all your questions will be answered

Amen to that. I painted some spare 16x7.5" wheels I was gonna put drag radials on. I Duct taped them and there are still traces of adhesive on the tires.

Oh and you probably wanna see where your leaking brake fuild from. I see the funnel and container of fluid.

Yeah, once I had not only the 4-wheel steer SHO but the 4-wheel-steer-zero-turning-radius SHO. Forgot to hook one of the control arms up after a sway bar job. whooooops.

Also, the ratchet, brake fluid, funnel, and hose, I can see, but the brick!?!? what's that, for smashing the windows in after it pisses you off?

when i painted mine, i wetsanded with a fine grit sponge, rinse, dried, tack-clothed, then used Krylon Engine Black Gloss and followed with Engine Clearcoat. if you strip the existing paint from the wheel and start with bare aluminum, youll end up with a dull fish scaled finish.

I painted mine this past winter with the Duplicolor white wheel painted. It matches pretty good and should hold up to the heat, just is a pain in the a$$ to keep clean
