Anyone ever re-clear coat wheel with spray-can paint?

Is it possible to do a small area and have it look OEM? Which paint did you use?

Bonkers should know, ask him.

How bad is the wheel? Got a pic? Never hurts to try. if it screws up you can just have it re-cleared anyway.

Oh it's not bad at all. Just wondering which is the lesser of two evils!

If I sand down the offending area with 1500 grit, can I use some spray can clear to make it look good as new?

I got a wheel that might need it too. Let me know how this goes as I'd love to learn and try.

Thanks!

You likely could but I would fear you may make it worse. good luck

I agree with Craig. Viper wheels are not easy to clearcoat, even by the pros. They get runs very easily.

Just sand down the area with some 2000 grit. Then polish it with a good aluminum wheel polish (Maguire's or other). Finally, cover the whole wheel with Wheel Wax (www.wheelwax.com). It works great without worrying about the clearcoat.

This process was recommended by the best alloy wheel restorer in the Detroit area and it works!
