Hey Guys,

I hope not to get bashed on this question. I was thiniking of painting my TL TYPE S wheels to a different color. I had in mind doing gold or ?

What you guys think? Should just leave it the way it is or paint them? Or should i sell them and get something different.

The great thing about paint is if you don't like it you can always paint them a different color. I say do what ya want. Just make sure to do your prep work and fill in any nicks or chips and do the best job you can. If you need a few pointers let me know. I have painted mine and few other sets and am getting ready to spray mine again here soon.

i think the majority of folks on here will say keep the OEM finish. with that being said, i think white would be a good color since you have a red tsx.
It depends on the finish the wheels have. If they are in perfect glossy condition, then I might have second thoughts. Mostly because I would love a set.

Do it yourself. I'm sure you or a buddy has basic tools. All you need is probably a spring compressor that you can rent from autozone or other parts stores. There are DIY on the site. Same with the wheels. Check out duplicolor and on YouTube. There is a lot of info out there on how to paint wheels.

If you know how to use a ratchet, and jack up a car you can lower it in a day. There is no danger?

just be careful with the spring compressor and you'll be fine. compressed spring unloaded on any part of your body is going to be painful.

if you are REALLY scared of using a spring compressor, save up and get a full on coilover that has the top hat already installed. suspension installs aren't as hard as you would think
