rdupree I agree with TubeTalk. I use a Sharpe FX1000 for a little bit of everything. Small part finish painting, epoxy, 2K primers, etc. The Sharpe is available with a 1.4 tip which makes it a VERY handy gun for me, has less overspray than a big gun, and is quicker and easier to clean.

TubeTek I prefer a detail gun over a full size gun for wheels and other similar stuff. I just find it easier to manipulate and get even coverage. Most of the detail guns use quite a bit less air than the full size guns too.

The gun i use is an Iwata LPH400 copy. It is made by Warwick Industries. It is the Warwick 904h. It was recommended to me by a professional painter. Guns lays clear down smooth as silk. Only ran me $130. Tips, parts are easily available if needed. Even comes with a 2 year warranty. It's an LVLP, not an air hog either. Low overspray, just like the Iwata at 1/4 of the cost.

Irelands child I agree with using rattle can paint on non-fancy wheels.

I've used the FL3 and the Sharpe. Both work well tho you can buy 3 other tips for the FL3, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8 and 2.2 if my memory serves me(I might be off a .1 or so). Mine came with the 1.5 and I purchased the other 3 and use it for general work and primers.

If you really get into painting, then Iwata and SATA guns will be on your wish list - but do cost a significant amount (lots) more

You don't necessarily need a spray gun to paint your wheels, you could use a high performance wheel coating from any parts store. But any spray gun will work too with the right paint and air pressure
