Best paint for wheels?

Recommended Posts

As soon as I get my atv i wanna spray paint the rims black..all black bike with chrome wheels (wtf?) so anyways..does anyone know any good preperations i should take to make it last as long as possible and look good and what brand spray paint would be the best..just wanna spray paint until i can afford new rims..which wont be for a while

I would powdercoat them because I dont think its TOO expensive for rims but as soon as I get some money im getting like 19s all around..or 18s back 19 front so imma need new rims anyways

Take them to a Line-x or Rhino liner dealer and have them coates with the same stuff as spray on bed liners. Soon as I get the money , I want to do the racks and front bumper on my Ozark.

lol wait..line-x on your rims? ..thats weird but..creative! interesting..i dont wanna spend more than like 20-40 bucks tho..i'll try to just get some spray paint and clean them really good spray a few thin layers and some clear coat..thats what most people have said works best..chrome is just so ugly on the all black bikes why must they do it?!

Where can you buy black rims? Havent seen any on any of the online dealers..maybe im not looking hard enough? Just so strapped for money right now..have to pay for half my bike..and gonna get nerfs and exhaust and hrc before i do wheels..just chrome is ..UUUGH thx for responses btw lol

i'm with ya bot...

spray paint works good until you get 5 feet into the woods....then its scratched all to crap, and you have to redo them....but if you plan on doing like mx type stuff with them, the paint lasts a LOT longer :)

before every race I have to pretty much paint my entire quad w/the black and pink paint cause its scratches so easily, but it is only a 2-3 dollar fix....

Great responses, and yeah i wont be doing hardly any trail riding at all..lots of woods around here..no trails..i just ride open fields..and friends house which is a big open farm..and rocky mountain sells black wheels but not the size for the trx :/

Combo at motosport is so expensive..for like holeshots on black t-9 rims is like 320 for 2 rims on 2 tires..all the combos for 2 rims 2 tires at rocky mountain were like 200 :/ but cant get black t-9s at rocky mountain only chrome

Ya those are what i want..imma go with either 19s all around or 19 fronts 18 backs..I was never a "topped out" type of person/rider...and all my friends have faster bikes anyways so theres no point to racing full speed..i want more acceleration. And i want smaller tires to lower the bike..i love wide/low bikes that feel really stable..and cant afford a-arms lol

EDIT: Found Holeshot MXR6's 19 fronts 18 backs on black ITP wheels for like 500$ ..Imma go with that unless anyone knows a cheaper site

Just put my ultimate mod list together for kicks and...depression of cost :( lol

Tires (listed above) - 500$

Black Ac Pro Peg Nerfs - 250$

Hmf black sport exhaust with blue vortex tip - 500$

jet kit - 50$

filter kit - 100$

stage 2 hot cams - around 180$

Final Cost - *tear* 1580$...

tip: DONT get the black AC nerf bars. the paint chips off WAYYYY to easy. I'm tempted to go get my digital camera and take a picture of the ones my husband has on his...and they look crappy when they chip, if you get them, keep a can of spray paint handy.

and, do you absolutely have to have the mxr6's?? i'll do some checkin for ya

When you have a good 2-3 weeks off of racing you should put a good 3-4 maybe even 5 coats of clear coat on it. Maybe you could get away with 2 or 3 races before repainting.

i thought thats what he said in another forum....ok, so when nick got his 08 450r, he got the AC bumper/nerf bars that matched, the bumper was smashed in after one slam into a tree and the paint chipped off of both....again, it does all depend on how "rough" the terrain is you're riding in...his definitely didnt look pretty for more than one race.

and, i ordered tires for nick from these guys, they don't currently have an auction up for black rims, but i'm pretty much 99% sure they have them and you can order them at the ebay price without even going through ebay....

lol, thanks for the idea bot, i'm hoping to get a new frame cause my 8 year old baby is starting to wear, i want to get that powdercoated....i repaint my nerfs and bumper every race. ooh and my grab bar too...every now and then when they really need it, i do my rims and handguards.

Thanks and..hm..would i need a full exhaust for the hrc kit? If i got hrc kit i could scratch cams and just go with a slip on hmf since the hrc kit comes with the header pipe..and i dont need mxr6s, those ebay guys look like a great deal but i wanna get some smaller tires ..1 for acceleration and 2 to lower the bike..thats why i wanted either 19 all around or 18 back 19 front..i SUPPOSE i could go with 20 fronts..i dunno tho... my friend has a yfz with 19 all around holeshots and it sits nice and low

and as for the nerf bars..i think they look the best and i wont go with anything other than black..unless someone has a diff nice cool brand of nerf bars that are more reeliable in black?

But for a few months (probly around that) i'll just try to do the best job possible (multiple coats + clear coat) on the bumper and rims..my first mod will be nerf bars and second will be jet kit with baffle and lid removed..then exhaust then filter kit....or hrc then exhaust..not sure yet

get a lowering link, he got one and made a whole bit of difference. he runs itp gncc holeshots all the way around.

I was thinkin bout that or spacers but..see we made this jump at my friends house..lol and everyone has bottomed out SOO bad..and other than that no other big jumps but i dont wanna take the risk of busting a link or spacers..Id prob get spacers before a link tho..i dunno..which would be stronger?

..Hm..friend has a welding machine at his house and his dad/bro know how to weld....anyone ever thought maybe i could weld the link somehow to where it wont move..but still allow everything else (a-arms shocks etc) to move how they would normally? Thinking about it i dont think its possible but u never know

OOR oh snap..what if i got him to weld me a new ..bracket think onto the a-arm like a inch down below where the shock would normally sit ..and just hook it to that...? eh eh
