How well does the paint stick to OEM aluminum alloy rims ?

I hit mine with scotchbrite before spraying with black bedliner.  Didn't have any chipping issues.  Use a good quality paint and prep and clean the surface, shouldnt be an issue.

Awesome, I'm going to paint mine this weekend and put them on my X.  Solar yellow with the blacked out rims should like sweet

Maybe I should of mentioned that the paint will be soft for at least a week or so.  Also, check the valve, it might just be loose.

Yeah, did some touch up on the paint, and it was the valve the guy at divot tire said none of the where tightened where they were supposed to be but it's all fixed now.
