hi. my dad felt itchy one day and bought a new set of rims for my ride which i didnt like.. i couldn't get my $$$ refunded as well as my stock rims returned because the boss wasnt keen. all i could do was to find another set of rims at the shop which looked nicer than the one my dad chose.. damn.

the thing is, i have looked around and it seems that newer designs nowadays are chrome, dark chrome or black chrome usually. those silver / polished metal also will have something dark or black. mine is half polished metal, half black spray painted (9 spokes). (the spokes are polished metal.. the side of the spokes where brake dust is usually found is black). i would like to keep the polished metal untouched and spray paint the black to silver.. can be done right?

any lobangs? no point getting new rims, this is a new set but to any other rims shop, it's considered 2nd hand and only worth 200+.. zzz.
thanks in advance.

one day im gg to change my dad's rims when he's not around.

Rims not adviseable to normal spray paint. Wil easily chip off. Its better u powder coat ur rims. The paint wil stay forever.

bro you can DIY yourself. with any normal spray paint. just make sure you clean your rim before you spray on it.

any after that use a hair dryer to blow it dry. use hot air to blow it dry.

than your paint will not peel off easy.

DIY spray is not for amateurs unless you have good knowledge and skills.

My buddy's sprayed wheels only lasted 10 months before the first cracks appear.

I bought the rims from Justin shop in AMK Ave 10... Then I said I like the design but not the color... So he said just top up another $100 and he can send the rim for spray paint.. And with powder coat too. The paint doesnt crack even till 3 years. just that changed color already.. yellowish... coz mine is white color... brake dust and things like that will dirty it easily.

Spraying of rims seem to be the in trend nowadays, in the past, was only black or white.

Now, we got pink, red, yellow. Myself is green.

I also did mine plus touch up for $100. If keen, you can search under my nick, threads.

Thank you for the responses.

No la, I am not intending to go for those fanciful colours. I am hoping to repair rims as well as to give a new coat of paint.

I would advise against going to the famous one AMK Autopoint.
Cant match my original color, gave me some half F job and service is f-up ttm.

Wad color are your rims? After respraying, the rims will be more prone to chips.
If you wanna get them resprayed I would suggest going to Sin Ming Autocare.
