    I know some people have painted and even powder coated their wheels. Currently, I have my rear wheel completely disassembled and will be painting the rim sparkle silver with a clear coat with Eastwood wheel paint. The hub appears unfinished, will paint adhere to it or is any special prep required? Or should I just paint the rim, clean up the hub and reassemble. I'm looking to paint this weekend so any input is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Just give it a good sand job, and clean it of any residue. With a few exceptions, all paint works as long as its applied clean and dried properly.
