I have the white stock rims on my 97 Sixxer, if I wanted to paint 'em, how would I go about doing that, and what type of paint should I use?
thanx

i would pay to get em powder coated. Check over at gixxer.com. But, if you really want to know, you've gotta strip em, sand em, prime ( alot), sand more, paint. unless you have a booth & gun, it's pretty tough to get em perfect. IMO, you are better off shelling out the $$

shit guys....i went to Fredericksburg powdercoating and they wanted $275 to powdercoat 1 wheel(rear rim). I went to home depot and spent $20 on spray auto primer, 2 spray cans of white appliance enamel, and emory cloth. Went home rubbed the rim down with the emory cloth, primed it twice, put on 2 coats of the appliance enamel...and voowaalaaaa!! Looked brand spankin new!! I swear I could have sold that thing to someone for like $375..thats how new it looked. it took me bout 2 hrs and I saved $255.

BTW, i didnt hav to strip the rim at all.
