Tires are mounted and the rims are now on the car. Yes, i think it looks pretty badass but I am becoming incredibly frustrated with this whole thing. the paint chips extremely easily if you touch the lug wrench to it or a rock hits it. Ive already noticed a few chips on some of the wheels. I dont know what i did wrong. it never said anywhere on the package that you needed to sand or scuff the wheels before painting them, so i jsut hit em with the paint. the first 2 came out great and the other 2 came out alright i guess. I painted them with old tires on them and afterward had some 205/50 azenis mounted to them. the machine ended up scuffing the paint. it didnt scratch. it seems to me that the paint was too soft or soemthing and it just scuffed it up. i brought em home and masked off the tires and sanded the problem areas and repainted. i also put about 3 coats of clear cuz i figured it may help protect against chipping. aparently this wasnt the case as i am seeing chips. im quite confident that i will have to do these over. if so, they are getting the full sand down and re spray. im going in with 80grit and tearing these things up. im jsut curious what i may have done wrong.
was it too cold outside? did the cleaner i use cause the paint not to bond well? do i just royally suck at this or what? any suggestions would be much appreciated.
edit: I know, I know. I need to slam this bitch. Its next on the list.
