I'm not sure on painting them but I know powdercoating is an option. Although I don't think it's a cheap option.

painting them isnt a problem!!

u need some high build metal primer, your paint, and lacquer.

seen a lot of painted wheels (including my own) and can look great if done right.

cheap option as well so if u dont like them u can try a different colour!!

just take ur tiem and do it right :)

Sorry just had a funny five minutes, lol

Buy some good quality tape and take you time if your tapeing them up, the better the preparation the better the results

yeah i know about powder coating but your looking at around £50 plus per wheel for that so might as well just but new wheels in the colour ya want
Not always true. If you shop around and check out local powder coating firms they will give you a base price, however if the wheel needs stripping back first it'll cost abit more. Strip all the paint off and de-grease it first, then the price should be alot lower. You can always ask in local engineering firms too, as they should have one or two powder coaters they use to get work finished, i know i do. The more prep work you do, the less they have to do, and the less they will charge.

Im in the process of getting a set of MO's coated white for the grand total of £40! :D If i went to the first place i came across, it would have been £100 for the set
