    Hit the rotor hats with drill/wire wheel and brakleen then spray the rotor hats with some black Krylon engine enamel.

    I was looking into it and some said caliper paint, i'm sure either would work but any real difference? I'll definitely try the wire wheel idea. Thanks

    it seems like the caliper paint sprays/lays thicker and can take a beating more then the engine paint....thats just from my own testing

    It works GREAT on wheels....as long as the vehicle doesn't sit outside. Learned that the last winter with the T/A. It beads so well....it actually just let water sit on the lip of the wheels.


    Looks great!!! Those are killer ass wheels for the 4th gens

    If it sits outside....I would probably just do my best to keep them clean. Not put anything on them.
    Barrels though....RejeX.

    The effects were on the TTII's. Several lips on them, and water would 'pool' at the bottom because of how well it beads. The TTII's are two-piece wheels, so at the place the pieces meet....I had issues cleaning them. Dirt would basically get stuck there....hard water type stains.
