Red Stripe around wheel/Tire

I noticed on CaySe's focus he has a red stripe around his wheel, how did you get that done? Anyone know of any shops that can attempt this? Am i painting the Lip of the wheel or the outer edge of the tire? Thanks.

Most people do the stripe with pinstriping, i *think* there's a particular kind that holds up well for such use. and you could probably get most any wheel shop to do it if you don't or can't. someone that knows these things for certain will eventually make their way to this thread lol.

it's a really easy mod to do...just do it yourself and save yourself some money

all you do is prep the area, prime, paint, and i do recommend putting a clear coat on top. however, many people who paint their rims don't. the clear coat is just added protection against rock chips and such

Besides vinyl pinstripe from the store, you could look into a professional shop that does paint pinstriping.
