Rally II wheel paint

I ordered some 15" rally II wheels from classic industries. They are going to replace my 14" rims. When I placed the order the salesman said I would need to buy the paint and the masking kit to paint the rims the charcoal color. He said they would come in the lighter color.

When the rims arrived, they are already the proper 2 colors. So my question is do I need to do anything or are they fine to mount tires on?

Thanks

The "proper" 2 colors can vary between paint colors. Depending on which paint manufacturers paint is on there the shades can vary. If you're certain its the right shades of Argent and Charcoal metallic, you'd be wise to apply a couple of coats of clear satin sealer if it hasn't already been applied.

Amen, brother....

I didn't think to do that to my repro 15" Rallye II's. The silver is powder-coat but the charcoal was (apparently) painted on over the powder-coat. Now I'm beginning to see spots where the charcoal is flaking off.

I blasted and repainted a different set of wheels myself back when I was building the car. No, you don't need to buy the masking kit You can get a much better, crisper look and better paint edges if you mask them yourself using pro "fine line" tape for the edges and then filling in the rest of the space with regular masking tape. The important part is making sure you get the right paint colors. Doing that is more tedious than using the masking kit, but the results are much better.
