Painting custom wheels the right color of gold
I used three of these cans to paint four 16" custom wheels (with a lot of surface area to cover). The color looks amazing and I am happy with the paint. The reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because I ordered 4 cans of paint and the fourth did not spray the paint (I think the paint was put in the can without propellant). I was overall satisfied with their support, however, and I was refunded.
BBS sti gold paint
Very good match, smooth application. Had a little trouble noozle sticking open on one can.
BBS gold wheel paint
Perfect color match on my vintage BBS wheels manufactured circa 1980
It’s from Grimmspeed, that should be more than enough...I normally don’t waste my time giving reviews but, this one is an exception to my rules because, it is just an AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING PAINT that it deserves to be acknowledged!!! I had PROUDLY recommended this one to a lot of my Subie buddies for their wheels, you know Subies and gold wheels go hand in hand, VERY STOKED about the result!!! My BBS wheels are lookin brand new now and couldn’t have been more happier. I’ll be buying again for my other 2 Soobs!!!!
BBS Gold Paint
This paint is fantastic. It went on easy and came out perfect. They look like they came from the factory this way. Highly recommended.
Came out great
I bought 4 cans of BBS Gold to refinish my OEM wheels. The original owner had badly curbed all of the wheels.
I had to do a lot of grinding , sanding and some filling. There are some imperfections left in the wheels, but they look 10 times better.
Each wheel was coated 3 time one the face and clearcoat and the inside barrel was coated 3 times as well but only clearcoat 2 times.
Almost looks factory. Came out very good.
The GrimmSpeed BBS Gold paint went on nicely and was easy to work with. Great coverage.
Shipping was fast, and like always great service. I will be ordering from GrimmSpeed in the future.
This color of gold is just right for my application, paint flows on easy and dries quickly. My recommendation for a clear coat is Cerakote ceramic clear paint. This clear is what manufactures put on factory wheels, totally chemical resistant.
great paint match
gold paint match my wheels on my 2008 hayabusa perfect
Gold wheel paint
Gold paint coler is perfect for my street tracker build. Paint went on easy and I was able to clear using ALSA speed clear. You will need 1 can per wheel for good coverage. Haven't run the bike yet to see how the paint holds up but I'm sure it will be fine with the clear over it.
This paint is really good, they did a good job of matching the sti bbs gold. Took a can and a half to do 2 coats on my rota g force
Grimmspeed Gold Paint
Best gold paint I have ever used. Tried so many different ones and there is no comparison.
EXTRA! EXTRA! we finaly have a match
I can't believe I finally found a paint to match my BBS wheels. With minimal effort I will have my OEM BBS wheels looking new again.
Great price, super product. I had a slight issue with the 1st can but after calling the team at GrimmSpeed they got me taken care of straight away. Super customer service - and that is appreciated.
I was looking for a color to match the BBS gold wheels I always loved on porsches and this was just what I wanted. I only bought one can to test it. Save yourself the shipping charges and just buy 3 or possibly 4 cans right off the bat because this is what you want.
Great control with the spray- very fine mist and the metallic very evenly distributes. Nothing like the cheap car paint you might get at walmart where the metal flake all sags... this looks very pro.
I did both outward facing and brake facing sides with the tires on and I covered it well with a reasonable amount left in the can. So, 3-4 cans to get all 4 wheels done. You will probably only need 1-2 cans of clear coat.
Dead on what I wanted. Great job guys.
Best product, great customer service
The Product was great, love the color. I'm glad I was able to receive this product, this paint is great. I will be ordering more paint from you guys. The customer service is the best.
Looks great on my Evo X
I painted my Evo X stock wheels with this paint. It looks amazing! I think it looks better than my friends STi stock gold wheels. I highly recommend this paint. I used one can per wheel and used a half of a can of clear for each wheel. Looks amazing!
Best gold paint I've seen
This is probably the best looking gold paint I've seen. I'd highly recommend it. I've painted all my interior silver trim pieces gold, a set of wheels, and various other exterior trim pieces with this paint.
Paint shines great with clear coat. I've had them painted for about 2 weeks and i am getting small chips. thats the only problem other then that its awesome!
great paint looks just like bbs gold
Awesome Paint!!! I tried a few different gold paint from home depot, lowes, etc. and not happy with the color. So...if you want that BBS gold color look, don't waste your time and buy the "grimmspeed gold wheel paint. If you prep your wheel correctly, you won't have any issues. I've had my wheels painted with grimmspeed gold for apprx 11 months now and I don't have any nicks, scuffs, or scratches. However, I did use a two part clear coat and the finish is very shiny. The finished product is actually posted above, its the Black Mazdaspeed 3 with the Grimmspeed gold wheel paint.
Buy 3 Cans
I did a set of 17" Wrx limited wheels that primed and then painted and needed 3 cans. So buy 3 and save on shipping!
unique and a great product over all
i ordered 2 cans for ap2 s2000 wheels and even with a primer 2 wasnt enough.3 would have done it.its better ta have more than not enough.i recomend blasting your wheels if your looking for a professional result,as stripper takes alot of work.the paint is forgiving and hardens up nicely.i recomend this but just keep in mind that prep work will make or break you.dont think that you can get away with a hurry up job.it will be a all day affair.i think the color is great but not an exact match to bbs.but it is unique and a great product over all.
ordered 2 cans of the BBS gold paint
Vendors a real pro , item was shipped out the day after it was ordered. I ordered 2 cans of the BBS gold paint
this paint is amazing
this paint is amazing. i ordered 2 cans thinkin i'd use em both but nope one can did all 4 of my 17 inch rims. the color is amazing and im really satisfied with the product. ps order the Grimm Speed decals too they match the gold rims ;)
color is excellent
"Well, let me just say that if you plan on painting all 4 wheels of the 18inch variety, especially with a lot of spokes, do yourself a favor and buy 4-5 cans. The first half of the can sprays very well, but as you get closer to the bottom, running, dripping, splattering can occur. I've gone through six cans. Definitely not for the novice if you're planning on painting all your wheels. The color is excellent, although I'm not sure how it matches up to BBS gold because it's been a while since I've seen BBS gold. And I'd have to say to wait MORE than 4 days before applying clearcoat. Maybe even wait a week. I applied clearcoat after 4 days and it wrinkled up on me. Foolishly I had thought that 4 days was enough and I sprayed them all at once.
Overall, nice color."
