I have seen a lot of pictures of 71 and 72 SS chevelles and it seems to me that the color of my wheels are darker than everyone else. What do you all think? I'm getting my rims split to a 15x10 in the rear and i think they will need repainting.
Your wheels look shiny. GM used a special laquer paint that had a pebble finish additive and a flattening agent to kill the shine. They wanted them to look like cast aluminum wheels. This is a wheel repainted with the correct Ditzler DDL32961 special laquer paint.
Yeah they aren't rough they are smooth and shiney, that's the way i got them. I actually like them the way they are so i guess ill just have them match the color and make it that way. I don't want black but i dont want grey, i want like a metalic charcole. thanks guys just wanted to make sure.
