Pretty easy process, I'll post a real picture of them on the car once it starts to snow and I swap out for the winter rims/tires


Real easy process and it was much easier to spray than real paint. Didn't have any issues with runs, not to mention I didnt have to sand, prime, paint or clear. As long as it holds up for most of the winter, I'll be happy.

But this blue, I think it'll clash nicely on the winter steelies. Now to find some. Crappy, out of focus, motion blurred and off color pic to follow sometime later
