    How could I make my rims white?

    I currently have 16" chrome Caddy rims, but I might be buying 18" alloy/silver color rims from another guy. Is there a long lasting way to change the color of the new rims? Paint or some other thing? I have always wanted white rims to match the car, and if there is a way, I would like to try. Thanks!!

    locate a powder coating company in the phone book. Powder coating is the ONLY long lasting way to do this.

    Powder coating would be the best, no doubt. However you can refinish alloy's at a body shop. All that silver is, is silver paint with a high quality clear coat.

    A body shop can strip that, paint the white and re-clear it. I had a rim repaired on my STS after it got damaged. It was marked up pretty bad and I wanted it replaced. The insurance company told me it could be fixed and my body repair guy, who is a friend of mine, agreed.

    Much to my surprise, that's what they did and it matched perfectly and now some 12 years later it still looks like new.
