    Lightbulb Aluminum wheel primer

    NickM,
    NOT knowing the chemical base of the Wurth wheel paints, it is hard to give solid, full-proof advice on what primers may be compatible w/ their line of paints...

    That being said... typically, when painting aluminum, a self-etching primer is used first. I would do a test panel first using Eastwood's Self-Etch primer #16014z & then top-coating it w/ the Wurth paint to see how they "get along". If everything looks good after sitting overnight, progress to painting the wheels. If NOT, check w/ Wurth & see what primer THEY recommend.. OR you could just do that from the beginning & possibly save yourself some aggravation.
