    I once did a set of Nissan Maxima Wheels up with a dedicated Wheel Paint from Dupli-Color.

    Dupli-Color Wheel Coating features a highly reflective metallic finish with superior adhesion to steel, aluminum, and plastic wheels and wheel coverings.

    Product: Wheel Coating - Aerosol | Dupli-Color

    How to: Dupli-Color Wheel Coating





    Sealed in with a lacque clear.

    It's all in the prep. You have to scuff it down to give it something to grab onto.

    I'm not quite sure I like the rims with chrome lug nuts I think some black lug nuts might look better? Thought on this?

    Yeah for sure, black lug nuts would certainly murder it out more.
    So would applying 3M black vinyl on all the chrome window trim, with a product called BLACKOUT tape.

    Search youTube vids on how to "Blackout Car Window Trim" or "Window Trim Chrome Delete".

    Further more, the upper chrome on the front grille and the chrome on the rear plate surround + the chrome on that wrong base front bumper cover, could either be covered in black vinyl or scuffed up and color-match painted.

    Debadge the rear trunk lid and hit the chrome LS lettering on the sides with black plasti-dip.

    Black heat paint them calipers.

    Fun fun fun ...

    Wheels turned out good!

      I buy rust-oleum wheel paint from Mills Fleet farm but I'm sure you can purchase the paint online it's the only paint I found that doesn't chip
