I think the wheels are too wide for the tires.

I have a set of 2014 mustang gt wheels I might paint black and use for a bit. The ones on the truck now came with the truck.

Many years ago, I tried painting one of my motorcycle helmets a grey color like that. Once I sprayed a clear coat over, it ended up crap (yellowish).

I recently saw a VW painted grey like that in my neighbourhood. Looked like a professional job, but again, the color came out crap from an overall perspective.

I think you need to go to some sort of flat or denim paint effect - I'm not sure how they do that, i.e. matte clear coat?

It's a pretty popular color now so i'm sure its doable.
