Duplicolor Metalcast paint... http://www.duplicolor.com/projects/howto_metalcast.html
My old wheels painted with it:


(No wheel gap jokes...!) That paint seemed to have more orange pigments than blue in the red, so in certain circumstances, sunlight reflected off portions more orange-red than true red. Just an FYI. :wink:

I painted a stainless steel lamp at home with the blue paint and it is amazing. :shock:

all the wheels i've had use a conical 45 degree

i'm pretty sure its 45 deg.
excellent ding ding ding :D

while we're discussing lugs, what brand is good anyone have experiences with good/bad lock nuts. im thinking i need a tiny bit of security since i park outside.
