Its not hard if you can spray to start with, if not get it done professionaly.

For best results take the wheels and tyres to a garage and get them to pop the top beads off the tyres, remove any old balance weights and remove the tyre valves (Taking care to NOT drop the back of the valve inside the tyre). This way you can easily mask the tyre off to avoid overspray and spray the valve seat also. Once done get the garage to fit a new tyre valve, re-inflate the tyre for you and re-balance the wheels.

Failing that take them to Peninsular 4x4 (Sprayforce) for a top job done professionally thumbsup

I guess the cost would be approx 30 - 40 per wheel to be sprayed professionally ??

if the wheels are in good condition and you only want to spray them, then spray them yourself will rattle cans, its really easy, if they need re-conditiond like mine did then get one of the sponsers to do them unles you have loads of time on your plate and then refurb them yourself

i can get you a tutorial of how to do it, but all you can even leave the tyre on and just mask it off, clean the wheel, primer it, spray it, and laquar it, just let me no if you want to see a tutorial

Spraying with rattle cans is easy as long as the thing you're spraying is horizontal. To get a good finish on it, you need to be liberal with the amount of paint you spray on it. If you're spraying on something vertical, it'll drip.
Sand it down (it comes off quite easily), clean it up (you may want to use metal filler for any small cracks), and stick about half a tin of spray primer on it. The important thing now is to let it dry, leave it overnight in a warm place, the longer the better. If you spray when it's still drying, the paint will crack and give you a crazy paving effect on it.
The fun part is just whacking loads and loads of rattle can paint on. Put quite a thick first few coats on, and then thin the layers out, making sure it's touch dry between each one.
I did my alloy and my rocker cover and they look immaculate. I've been spraying for about five years though.

Only thing with useing spraycans is surely if you jetwash your rims the paint will come off?

I think about 30 a wheel is a good price, you can lower that if you get them de-tyred and acid dipped smile

Will you have to not use wheel acid to clean the wheels once they're finished and got dirty from drivng, incase it attacks the paint on the wheels? confused
