My wheels are pitting and coroding where the balancers were installed. Looks nasty. Why couldn't they have been put inside the wheel? Anyway, love the look. How'd you do it?

Standard practice is to divide the weight needed and put half on the outer side of the rim and half on the inner side of the rim.

Thanks guys for all the comments.
I just used duplicolor high gloss black, and duplicolor primer.
I used 3m scuff pad to do the prep work.
Real time consuming, but definitely worth the wait!
I tried focusing on making sure of scuffing all the glossy parts of the stock rim from factory, because I've learned with painting my side door moldings.
Here's pics of some prep work.
Also for those who try this make sure you tuck the tape in between the rim and tire with like an old credit card or something. It will help get that rounded part of the rim on the edge.
