Default Where could I get my 2006 Honda Civic SI wheels painted?

I have a 2006 Civic EX with the SI wheels and I was looking to get them painted gloss black? Is there anyway I could do it or anywhere I could get it done?

do it yourself! go to the honda dealership, home depot or any other places that sells paint. find the spray cans and you're good. i have a 02 impreza. i painted the OEM wheels bronze. (too many people have gold) i got my spray cans at a jdm shop.

Google "wheel customization" and select a shop near you. Or call your local dealer and see where they suggest. Most likely they have a customization shop they work with.

Not gloss black, but I've see people do it themselves with 'plasti dip'. It leaves a black matte finish. It's quite durable and if you decide not to keep it, just peel it off like a glove.

Take a look:

It also protects your OEM wheels from scratches and what not.

can always get them powder coated... would last long and look great... but can be a little exspensive..

rims arent very hard to paint your self... get some good quaility paint.. very lightly sand the rims down to rough the surface enough for the paint to stick..

clean very metaicolously...

mist coat

followed by multiple even coats

sealed off with a clear coat

you could prob google search DIY rim painting and come up with quite a few in dpth instruction sets...

best of luck
