The clear makes a hard shell over the paint so if you get light scratches it never reaches the paint.

Practice on your spare wheel first?
Yeah I will practice on my spare will first, I will take your advice.

if i were near you I'd paint them for you
That could be cool

Yes he does.

Well my dad doesn't agree me painting the wheels, but he did agree to let me buy some 22s
