If you’ve been paying attention you’ve probably noticed that the wheels on the S14 look a bit like garbage! And let’s be honest who doesn’t like a brand new set of wheels. However, I actually like the wheels on the S14 and would like to use them for a bit longer while I save for something new in the future. That said, today we are fixing those scuffed wheels and hopefully I don’t potato them in the process.

Hey guys, it's Zach - I want to point out that I DEFINITELY should have been wearing a proper respirator while painting. ESPECIALLY because I was using activated paint, which makes it much worse for you. I wasn't thinking, and should have been. I'm setting an example for a lot of you guys and I promise to do better on the personal protective equipment. Love you all!!

Hmm, been thinking of this for the totally twatted wheels on our X3. Cost for a pro job is about £90 each. Thinking the cost and time vs someone else doing it is probably not worth it. I've had an old alloy I spent a day on years ago at the primer stage but never got round to painting it 🤣

Nice job, but I’d like to see you do a spray wrap with something like Pasti-Dip. Would probably be a lot cheaper, no?

Brian Winzy Pred 6 dnevi
I did all 4 wheels in 2h lol. And cost me about 60$ to paint them all. 2 years later, they are still looking great! I used a cheap primer, the same spray paint as you did but the gold one, and the duplicolor clear coat! 2 cans of each was enough for all 4 wheels!

Why wasn't a 90deg die grinder with a scotchbrite pad used?
Moises Frausto
Moises Frausto Pred 10 dnevi
I would use odorless mineral spirits to do the first initial cleaning with the scotch brite (doesn't evaporate as quickly as brake cleaner which gives you more time to clean), then wiping most of it off when done using it, and then remove the excess with brake cleaner.

This was dope Jobe!!! BTW: if ya'll are looking for additional tutorials regarding this topic, or perhaps info specifically on repairing rims with larger gouges, even cracked metal, etc. then I *strongly* recommend ya'll go check out *SprayWayCustom's* videos (forgive me for forgetting the exact channel name..my bad lol..it's super easy to find *SprayWay's* vids on here though, you shouldn't have any trouble). He is a true professional at fixing rims, and generally all things auto-paint/body-work related for that matter. You will be hard pressed to find a better, more informative/useful resource from anyone here on SLtv...the guy is the fuckin' *G O A T* - bar none. No cap. Plus there are numerous videos on various topics, however there is a particular rim restoration video I am talking about where he restores a full set of rims for a client. It's similar to this video, just a bit more in depth and it showcases some additional skills/processes which were not necessarily applicable to this scenario but still good to learn about nonetheless. Go find that shit and thank me later!!!😉 The man's work speaks for itself you'll see!!! fwiw -Cheers,
Activist
Activist Pred 16 dnevi
the paint came out really good, but you didnt have to use that much primer, you could get away with doing all of the wheels with 1 of those cans, primer isnt meant to go on that thick, just saying for those trying to replicate this that the primer can go further than in the video if you do it correctly.

Few mounths back I did the same with my alloys. There 16" rims (5 spoke) and pulled it off to only do the outside with 1 2K can of clearcoat (same as you used). 2 layers for each rim. Did it in 1 session to prevent any waste of paint. And yes, I also did not used a good respirator. Next time I will. The inside and the bed I used a way cheaper 1K clearcoat from Motip. Thats just there for protection and not for the looks. I used grid 1000 or 1200 for the final whipedown before paint.

The cheapest way to do it is do not paint the whole wheel. Repair the spot and just basically airbrush the repair and you’ll save a lot of time and money. But this video was amazing to show you how to do it fully from scratch

Biggest pain point would be having car down for a day. Would have to take wheel off, be driven to tire shop, have them take tire off, do all of this work, and drive back to tire shop. Realistically that could take 1-2 days a wheel if bothering friends/family for rides and such

I came from fb donut to remind to all of you that you need to balance your wheels again, professionaly, in order to avoid vibrations on specific speed ranges. Please don't forget to balance the wheels as it could get dangerous, especially in high speed open curves when wet.

I live on Long Island. I did my truck rims early spring last year, came out minty and it was awesome. They looked new and it held up great. Until it snowed. The snow melt on the roads DESTROYED the clear coat (it was specifically made for rims like the stuff you have). It looked so bad I had to removed the clear coat and ultimately the rims are trashed (I had sanded them prior to starting the job to clean them up). My advice? If you live in perpetual 70 degrees, go for it - mine held up all year till the next January. If you live in NY or anywhere they chemically treat the roads for snow and ice - don't.

How to repaint your wheels; Step 1: Make friends with a powder coater Step 2: *Reap the benefits*
Wolf Cone
Wolf Cone Pred 12 dnevi
I just researched it a bit and it's $70 dollars to have a 17" rim powdercoated by a reputable coater on the East Coast. I can't vouche for West Coast but that seems like a much better outlet. I understand the diyers like doing shit themselves but realistically its night and day quality difference and I would recommend just getting it professionally done rather than buying professional grade products and doing it yourself.
