Last year for my NA, I picked up a set of 5 spokes off an Acura Integra type r for cheap. They had been rattle canned at least 2 different times that I could tell. A dark green and when I got them they were a matte black. They were extremely dirty and the matte black looked bad. So I decided to paint them again. Picked up 2 cans of Duplicolor Graphite wheel paint. Since they were already painted a matte color, I figured no prep other than clean them would be necessary. I soaked them in wheel cleaner and then wiped them down with soapy water. Since they already had tires mounted, I opted for the note card method and did 1 extra step of running some painters tape around the tire where over spray might happen. Here are the results.

Looks good! I did mine today in gold and was rushed in time before i had to drive two hours back to my house, the paint didnt dry the whole way slid towards the rim of the wheel and looks wrinkled now. Oh well ill fix it another day.

offset and width? - I'm liking these wheels, not too many fat five spokes in miata-sized aftermarket.
15x6 and I'm thinking +40something. I have 195s on there and they are sunk.

Very nice! I like the subtle sparkle. I'm a bit biased though cuz my wheels are a very similar color :lol:

those are the GSR fat fives :)

Good color IMO...I use it a lot on race wheels because it hides brake dust. I used to paint my protege wheels with it every 6 months instead of cleaning them too ;) lol
