You don't need to sand the paint all the way off...just go over the entire wheel so that the paint is scuffed. This will allow the new paint to stick better. Same thing I did to my old Subzeros and the paint held real well. I also gave them about 5-6 coats along with 2 coats of clear.



They were white to begin with...

a fine sandblasting also works well. Cost you about $10 a wheel. It's up to you. We just got my friend's rims heavy blasted, and the texture is pretty cool. Using filler primer to even it out, and tone it down.
