QUESTION FOR FORUM....

HOW MUCH DO PEOPLE CHARGE/PAY TO PAINT THEIR WHEELS?

and of those that have painted wheels...

how do they hold up to weather and washing....and everyday use? Clear coat too?

NavigatorsLegacy 03-20-2013 07:10 PM

I usually charge around $250 to do a set. I had a jaguar with gunmetal gray wheels for 2 years before I sold it. They looked just as good then as they did when I painted them. As long as they are prepped and painted right you will be fine
