i'm thinking of painting red lips on my rims. i'm scared the black will make the red look really dirty.

any advice? any ideas? any how-to's?

thanks

I would try my sister's nail polish! :hammer j/k

I wonder if it's okay to just paint over the black on the rims?
or do you have to sand it down to the primer/base? and then paint
over it?

If you just want the stripe on black rims. Just go to a sign shop and have them cut you some strips, preferably circular, of vinyl, in your color of choice. Then apply with a steady hand and enjoy the results.
