TRD Pro Wheels Mod for CHEAP!!!!

I decided to black out my wheels on my Tundra. The stock wheels are exactly like the Pro wheels except the stock ones have silver accents. So...all I did was degreased them with Purple Power at the car wash, and then sand them down with a Red Scotch Brite pad, wiped them with a tack rag, then I painted 3 coats of Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy. And that's it. I did remove the Toyota emblem on the center cap and painted it red with Krylon Fusion for plastic, and I painted the brake calipers with Caliper paint. The appliance paint is awesome stuff. It has a high gloss, and last for years with no chips or anything. it's really durable stuff. It's scrubbable too. I used it on my refrigerator handles about five years ago and it's still going strong, after many many dirty hands and cleaners and scrubbing. I've used it on many wheels in the past. Total mod cost was $12 bucks and only took 2 hours. I let it sit for 4 hours before driving.

1. Degrease wheels
2. Rinse & Dry
3. Scuff with Red Scotch Brite till all shine is gone
4. Wipe with tack rag
5. Paint one light bonding coat of Appliance Epoxy, let dry, then follow up with two wet coats

@Yamanine , did you tape off and spray just the silver areas? Or spray the whole wheel? Thanks

@GR8White I also painted the running boards the same way, but I sanded them with 320 first.

I have the cheap EBay version. The black paint is coming off around the plastic steps from rubbing of weight when getting in and out. I was looking for a fix. Thanks for help.

What about heat? " Do no expose to temperatures exceeding 50C/ 122F" that is in the spec sheet.
