    Single Stage or BC/CC for wheels?


    I want to paint the black steel Rallye wheels on my Biscayne body color. I have the exact paint mix in Dupont Cromax pro wbc. Now the decision on whether to use a matching single stage urethane or the same BC/CC that is on the car. Which would be more durable? What do the manufacturers do? What say you paint pros?


    Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong!

    On the wheels for my truck I just used single stage because I'm guessing either way they will see rock chips eventually so I used a good industrial paint to try to help prevent them. Plus I might be able to touch them up easier later on down the road. But like Don said, if you have the material already, use it.

    I did the same, bought single stage thinking I could fix chips easier later, but if I had bc/cc that matches I'd use it before buying something else.
    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
