  1. hey Chris thanks for all the ideas im saving up for a 05 e43 m3 and everything im going to do to it im going to watch your videos even cleaning the headlights with toothpaste 😉

  2. I’m pretty sure those aftermarket wheels are Motegi Racing wheels, judging by the logo on the center cap

  3. why did americans forget how to pronounce jaguar some where in the 50's? In the 50's they said it correctly now they sound like retards.

  4. Get them goggles and dust mask…lol…must be some you tube requirement for videos…i guess. I can see when its really necessary…but not what you are doing today!

  5. Hey Chris big question I have a dodge avenger 2009 and the wheels are abosuletly filthy and there's this white stuff I have on it idk what it is but it's white and green and won't come off the rim you have any advice

  6. Hey chris do you have a po box, if not should open one it would be awesome to have a second Channel for mail unboxing

  7. Hey man! nice vid! how many cans of each did you use for your wheels. i want to paint and restore my mazdaspeed 3 wheels. Thanks!

  8. how about taking the tire of the wheels and repair flat tire at home and how do u now the color matches exactly when u buy it thank you

  9. I never knew it was that easy. Yes it’s time consuming but rewarding. I’ll be purchasing a cheap set of rims just to have fun on.

  10. Can we go from the gray primer filler and sand it then go straight into clear coat and skip the painting, cause I don't wanna paint my wheels and idk what to use for chrome wheels ?

  11. So let me make sure I got it right…
    You use sandpaper standing on hard floor, but you spray paint on the dirt!!!

  12. It just happened 1 hour ago and you can't imagine how pissed i am right now , i bought those new rims 2 days ago only 2 days and now a curb rash 🙁 i will try to fix it and i hope its gonna work like you did in this amazing video…

  13. This is really good and well narrated! I was a bit hesitant to do this, but you are informative and explain things so clearly that I want to do this! Just wondered, when you sanded the wheel to smooth it down, did you remove any of the previous paint, or just focus on getting the wheel as smooth and consistent as possible?

  14. Forgot to mention that when painting the back of the wheels, do not paint the mounting surface that contacts the hub. Doing that will create an uneven contact between the wheels and hub, that will cause vibrations. Awesome video.

  15. Thanks for the video my girl curbed the hell out of my Range Rover rims and I can't afford to take them to a shop😀😀😀

  16. Love ChrisFix videos! He inspired me to clean my car properly!! For a car newbie, I just wish that this video included re-installing the tire stem & weight too, since it showed how to remove them.

  17. Awesome video. Also, anyone knows how many cans of primer, paint and clear would be needed to do four wheels?

  18. @ChrisFix how many spray cans did you buy for all 4 wheels? Did 1 do the job or did you get 1 of each (primer, paint, clear) for each wheel?

  19. Really great video explanations as well. Clear and concise.

    The finish looks fantastic.

    Quick question – Should it be emery cloth/paper rather than sandpaper?

    Emery cloth is a strip of dense fabric that has small metallic or synthetic particles bonded to it with glues and adhesives. It's best used to smooth metal surfaces. The small metallic particles often include bits of aluminium oxide that are set in iron oxide. It's especially helpful in eradicating rust, eliminating corrosion, polishing metal and removing paint from metal surfaces.

  20. So I got a flat and scraped the area around the lug nuts when changing it. Is it possible to do this in just that area or would I have to do the whole wheel?

  21. @chrisfix I’m gonna follow these steps on my wheels but the only question or concern I have is that mostly have curb
    Rashes around the wheel then the wheel it’s self do I use the 80 grit to strip the whole pain from the wheel or what’s up cz I basically wanna repaint them

  22. Just bought some OEM lancer 18 x 7 for my small 2wd Tacoma. $150 with light curb rash on 1 wheel. Going to paint the wheels as you described thank you so much.

  23. For 2 piece forged wheels, do you recommend disassembling the wheel and painting each piece separately? Or can this method be done as 1 piece?

  24. I found your channel maybe a week ago and I just wanted to say thank you. I've learned so much it isn't even funny. I'm a woodworker and I wanted to pass something on to you that might help you save some money as well. I use a sandpaper called Abranet by Mirka. It costs a bit more than your average pack of sand paper, but its a mesh, so it rarely clogs and cleans very easy. It has saved me hundreds since I switched. I went from using half a pack per project to using only one abranet disk per three of four projects (They come 5 disks per pack, it comes in rolls and standard rectangles too). I've had to use them on steel and aluminum before and work great. Thanks again for your hard work, it is very much appreciated.

  25. Really awesome video! Kudos. You are an excellent instructor. Very clear and concise and energetic. I’d watch you teach us how to watch paint dry.

  26. You did not mention that you need to balance your wheels again after this. Was it intentional to get more broken cars to fix? 🙂

  27. Good job but cant help thinking as powder coating is so inexpensive these days approx $40-60 a wheel its possibly easier to drop your rims off and let somebody else do all the hard work…..theres a lot of paint and a lot of clear and a lot primer filler plus bondo plus grit paper and elbow grease x 4. I bet using decent materials alone could cost around $50-80 for a set of 4 wheels. Powder coating also gets the inside rims looking just as good and the finish will last much longer. Get a quote for powder coating first unless youre on the tightest of budgets and have all the materials already lying about in the garage or shed……
