if you had se-r wheels or had it to do all over again, what would you have done to your wheels?

:thumbup: i think thats what i going to end up doing. the polishing will be a pain and then i would need to match the centre caps. but im going to go for the silver lip. so im going to use high temp black, and high temp clear. i like the black on my silver car.

I would do

I would go with the theme of what I plan to do to the car..
Since I am picking to have an uber red and black theme I would have them as black as it can go.. but if i have black paint i would have them as red as i would go..

( want Nismo 17x7.5 Bronze rims? 17.6 pounds each.. 225/45-17 stock height or 215/45-17 lowered.. they say Nismo on them!!)
I have the part number..
40305-RN75020

i dont like 17in wheels, my wheels are 15lbs each. :thumbup:
bronze would look bad on my car (platnum silver), belive me i have thought of it.
i got my wheels for $250...all 4!
a $250 nismo part would be the centre cap for the wheel.

Hell Yeah!

Hell yeah! I was wondering when a company or someone would release a ground kit for the B13 1.6 liter. All I have ever seen is for the SR20 or QR25, Im reading everything right now cause Im really interested in a ground kit.

If I was putting the wheels on my white 200sx, I would strip them and paint them powdercoat them silver with a polished lip. On any other car I would paint them gunmetal w/a polished lip.....

I think your wheels look good as is, but I think the chrome lip with glossy black would look even sweeeeeeeeeeeter!! I have stock SE-R rims that are flaking and am thinking about having them painted or powdercoated. It would take me way to long to do it one by one though.

doesnt take as long as you might think

i did 2 at a time over a week period

had the car jacked up on stands for a total of 2 days over the week, but i would say thats about average

How many coats paint/clear did you use and how long did they take to dry for each coat?

radio will agree with me here, USE KRYLON, it takes 5 minutes to dry to the touch! i used 2 cans of paint at $3 each. i 100% taped off my tires and all. but this time the tires will be off and the paint will be 100% striped but glassbeading/paint striper combo (glass beading to get the paint off and striper to clean them up) outside and in.ill be taking pics throughout the entire process and im starting tomarrow. im gona see how much i can polish up the lip, if i dont like it i will just scuff it up and paint the entire thing. or ill go with a brushed alum lip but i can do that after i paint them. if you want a good shine paint the wheel with the color of choice and them wet sand it with 600 or 800 grit, then clear coat it and sand with 800 first then 2000 last..........you will be blinded by the shine.
