What Kind of Paint to Use on Car Rims? J.D. Power
I’m a wheels guy. In my opinion, any car, no matter its age or condition, looks better with a great set of wheels. You can take any basic economy car, bolt on a set of nice rims, tint the glass, and transform it into a respectable ride.

Perhaps you just inherited Grandma’s decade-old Toyota Avalon, and you’re desperate to find a way to make it look better. “Black rims are the answer!” you proclaim.
This decision, however, is likely followed by a quick internet search: “What kind of paint to use on car rims?” After all, if you’re trying to figure out how to make a hand-me-down Avalon look swag, you’re likely planning a do-it-yourself project.
Before you embark on this well-crafted plan, you should first determine a few things. For example, does the Avalon have rims suitable for painting? How can you best prepare the rims for paint? Only then you can answer the question of what kind of paint to use on car rims.
