    FAO people with white wheels

    Hi

    Did you get your wheels powdercoated or spray them yourself.

    If so which white did you use?

    Or what process to get them as white as they should be.

    As the last time i tried doing mine white, they went creame

    Thanks

    Powder coated professionally, no issues with colour beyond them being darn hard to keep clean

    i did mine in ford 'diamond white', and they are fine.

    you have to expect white wheels to be high maintenance though
