    What's the best primer for alloy wheels?

    Need some advice on the best primer to use on aluminum especially ally wheels. In the past the paints I tried tended to chip and flake off easily.

    as with any bare metal you will need to ETCH PRIMER them first. You can buy spray can etch primer or buy it buy the 1/2 ltr to use in a gun. after a light coating of etch you would then add a coat of high build filler primer. then when its dry flat in down to a good even surface to no higher than 320 grade paper and then hit it with top coat and laquer
