I'm painting my rims too. About half done. What brand of paint did you use? Also, did you have any issues with the lug nuts cutting and scraping away some of the fresh paint?

I did about 6 or 7 coats on mine and let it sit 12+ hours, and when I tightened the lug nuts the paint was being cut into.

Best to let the rims sit in the sun for a day or two, lets the paint harden.

I used wheel paint when I did my steelies, some of its comming off but its mostly there. Not bad for two years use
