Why? Unless they are offroad tires on a truck.

I painted mine with Krylon Spray...




If you are looking for a very cheap fix that's the way to go.

I painted a set of truck wheels with the graphite color wheel paint. I fell in love with it. I'll eventually paint my Monte's rims that color.

some other member here talking about some kind of indestructible rim "paint" or coating that could withstand anything. I wish I could remember that. I'd love to paint some 93 cobra fan blades with an evergreen frost color.

Funny you brought that up. There is a Dodge Dakota at the shop right now that the guy painted the inside of his truck bed with bed liner (with a sprayer). Well, it came out real nice, so he painted THE WHOLE TRUCK WITH IT. It sounds ugly, but actually, the truck looks really good! I'll get pics to show y'all, but it came out nice and now me and another mechanic are thinking about painting our old trucks the same way (but another color besides black).

Yes they are. They are sitting now waiting for spring when I can get a nice set of tires to go on them.

Well, here are the pics of what a truck completed painted in Rhino Liner looks like (as I promised); sorry the truck is dirty:






I'm thinking of doing my Dodge truck (but not in black, some other color).
