Default Painted wheels finally

Now I justneed to buy some 255/70s and I'll be set Wheels-$75 for 5+the junk 31s that were on them Paint-$15 so $90 for a nice looking set of rims The extra wheel has a pretty bad ding on the edge of it and didnt look like it was going to hold air so I didn't bother painting it. There not perfect but I'm sure not complaining I re-cleared the center caps to so they're nice and shiny but they're an hour away at my apartment right now.

so they are just painted, not powdercoated. they look nice, but if they are not powdercoated be prepared to do them every year as paint takes a beating on rims.

Yea just painted, well I was looking to do this for cheap so if I have to redue them oh well still alot better then paying how much it would have cost to get these powdercoated or for new wheels.

Thanks! Hopefullying buying tires either next weekend or the weekend after. 255/70s shouldn't rub any should they? They have a set of Grabber AT2'sat Wal-Mart for $95 a piece that I've wanted to get since I first saw them.

They look good. Did you clearcoat them? If not you should. Did you just do this with a rattle can or an actual paint gun? Looks real good.
