Talking Just painted My 189's GTR Gunmetal GRey!!! Check it out!

Scroll Down For Pics with wheels on the car!
So my car has been sitting on Jackstands for about a month now.
I miss my car sooo much!!
I got into an stupid accident looking back at a ferrari and a crowd
as i was pulling out of Cars and Coffee Plano TX
i was driving supposedly onto a ramp to take the toll way but i was out of place
so smart me i hit the brakes and try to take the ramp and i hit the ramp think going
Like 40 Mph Pictures provided below on what happened
i bent the crap out of my tirod and bent a bunch of other stuff i don't wanna list out.
any ways i also cracked my wheels and broke 2 of them.
i was thinking of upgrading my wheels but came across cheep 189's with tires.
so i when ahed and bought them but they had severe curb rash and thought i should fix them and paint them!
so i did i sanded them and and chose
Nissan GTR Gunmetal gray Code: KAD PPG Deltron DBC
and Thick DEltron DBC 2002 clear coat
i also added metal filler to them! they turned out nice
and the color just mind blowing!

i know i should of made a DIY on how to repaint wheels and fix curb rash but i was
tooo exited, so sorry guys! but enjoy the color and let me know what you think!!

It looks worse than this in person
(Split my front wheel CLean in Half the thing holding it together is the Tire...)

Looks really good! I've always wondered though, how durable are painted rims? Will the paint chip off as soon as you try to mount or dismount a tire from them?

Can you take a pic standing far back from the car? to give us a better idea of the overall?

Typically, isn't paint on rims not very durable? Powder coating is more durable, right?

One way to find out i have never done this on wheels myself. but the clear is pretty thick so I'm keeping my fingers crossed and I'm going to mount the tires myself so ill be extra careful

i havent mounted the tires on them yet i should do that later on today
and
true powder coating is better and stonger but a company wanted $125 a wheel, so i just did it all my self for $150 using top of the line paint, and the clear is some of the best stuff out there!

I would have powdered coated, it lasts so much longer and doesn't chip like regular paint. this does look very nice.
