One note about the wheels. They are painted by metallic base coat and I did not lay any clearlack so they are matt in finish. I got nice metallic base colour and small patch of pure black, than did trial and error mixture to get colour "dark enough silver" and then painted fist matt black - teiped centers - and added own shade of metallic silver.

People say metallic base coat will not stay without clear coat, but I have done this this before and had no issues. Also now thse wheels are already 3+ years old, and no issues what so ever. Naturally dirt is easier to remove in glossy surface, but these are not too bad, just ordinary was so far.
