Painting wheels

I had to get a rear wheel for my bike and it's the wrong color what would you use to paint it?

I will paint the wheel either silver or blk front wheel is silver but I am going to paint the bike blk so i don't know if that would be to much blk?

thanks

Well, I had a 4 wheels done at once, so I'm sure my cost was a bit lower than average. I think it took about 2 weeks total, but he had one set to me very quickly so I could race it that weekend, and he also had to order my color of powder, since this is not a very common choice I suppose.

Your best bet is to ask him, he'd give you the best pricing. You will have to replace the wheel bearings though. Which cost me about $30 for all 4 bearings.

Powder coating is great, but if you can't afford it or have the time, duplicolor has a special paint made for painting rims @ autozone for about $5 a can and they have different colors. I did my rims gunmetal to match my bike.

ah...

if u were passing it for a quick install and to powercoat later, a darker color will hide more overspray and small deviations. could still be sanded and clear coated w/ can spray for time being.
