I was given a set of PD EO 16" 7 & 8 rims , the one in the picture was the worst, I hand sanded them down, primer, sand, primer sand, paint, sand, prime some more and so one then Clear Coat, did the center caps too black inlay and clear coat. this one wheel took me about 5 hours total over a few weeks, so cost was my time (like most of us here) and cost of paint, primer and clear coat, maybe $50-70 i used this paint and clear coat.
