Kifflom r/gtaonline.This is my first post in here. Some may know already out of the comment sections here. As requested by u/bob_the_impala and u/Gaming_Atlas I made a short and quick guide about painting and tinting stock rims without the iFruit-app. There are a lot of beautiful stock rims in the game which should be colorable by default. With a little trick you can do this by yourself. Unfortunately many users have problems with iFruit on their smartphones and can’t paint stock rims. I am one of the few who can use the iFruit-app and can use both methods.Anyway the method I am explaining is way faster and better and very easy.
Buy rims for your car (doesn’t matter which rim you choose; I’m always using cheap rims.).
Select your preferred rim paint and apply it.
Switch back to stock rims and buy them (again).
Leave your chosen workshop. You can do a force-save (put on glasses and put them off) to be safe.
Switch to Story Mode.
Switch back to Online.
Now you can enjoy your freshly painted stock rims.
Important note: Not ALL stock rims can be colored. If they are already chrome (Pfister 811 for example) you can’t do anything to apply paint. Some rims look like they can be colored but can’t. Also some have a light shiny structure and can be colored (Karin Previon is a good example). The third group consists vehicles which have their rims colored by secondary color (Ocelot Pariah or Ocelot XA-21 for examples). And there is a fourth group: The cars with stock rims that can be tinted (similar to painted rims but the color is very lightly visible/more transparent (compare my Imponte Phoenix and the stock one and the Imponte Ruiner stock rims and tinted rims on the pictures).
All the cars with tintable stock rims:
– Dubsta2 (pearlescent color, NOT wheel color tints the wheel outline)
– Willard Faction Custom Donk
– Declasse Moonbeam Custom
– Albany Primo Custom
– Imponte Ruiner
– Declasse Sabre Turbo Custom
– Karin Sultan
– Imponte Phoenix
All methods are completly legit and without modmenus or altering game files. If you have questions or want to know more (such as using worn colors for your cars, what are worn colors and how to get them, which cars can have their stock rims painted) let me know. Have some fun with your new colored stock rims.
