Hubs are what the wheels fit onto. What ryan has painted are the wheel caps.

Hey guys. Jump starting the stagnant thread as i'm getting a new Honda Brio and i really want to stylize my wheel caps. Silver on silver rims looks boring! I really wanted to paint caps black with gold outlines. Have a pretty clear image in my head of what I want. Really need advice.

My heart want to DIY but brain tells me "You are sh*t at shuff like this!" Don't want to spoil my wheel caps. Does anyone know where I can get something like this done professionally?

This is what I have in mind. I know this is a pathetic self done job on "paint", but its the only way i could represent it!

Thanks.

Reviving this thread again.

My ritz had wheel caps which were scratched everywhere. I was about to throw them away when the painting idea struck me. Spent Rs 80 on a can of black spray paint and the result is this.

Since this is my first painting job, the finish is not that good. but with a bit of mud/dust on the caps, those imperfections are easily covered. It needs a detailed inspection to see those issues.

Let me know what do you think.
