Want to paint wheels

I was wondering where i could find the right wheel paint. I looked in bav auto for some spraybomb silver.

I just want to know if there is a genuine bmw color i need, or could i just use some regular silver spray bomb

Im not sure about painting your own wheels.

But the company SEM makes good applicable paint, and you could get stuff for surfaces that will be exposed to water + wear..

im not sure though..sorry, look for wheel paint though(duh)

to paint your wheels though, usually a better thing to have someone pro do it so you dont get stuff on your tires or in your lug nut area...

well my dad is a proffesional painter, and does alot of custom helmet and bike jobs, so I would pretty much be taught to do it by him, or just get him to do it.

Ive seen used car dealers spray paint the rims. Ofcoruse they just use spray paint and it flakes off after a while but Im sure if you get soem head resistant and high wear paint it wouldnt be that bad. Just do a good job and dont paint over top of the valve stem like ive seen many do.
