    New wheel paint styles

    I've been seeing more and more cars with high end wheels that have an almost transparent color to them.
    This isn't the best example but maybe gives an idea...

    How are these finishes achived?
    Tinted lacquer on a raw metal surface?
    On cars




    Anyone know?
    Thanks

    Looks like anodized coating on machined aluminum. I have also seen candy powdercoats used in this way. Copper plating is also pretty trendy right now with steam punk and rat rod type of vehicles.

    Could be. Thanks for the thought.
    I was hoping it would be something I could replicate easily...
    Oh well!
