I want to paint my wheels black, because i don't want the blue color anymore.
Anyone with experience with repainting wheels?
Do i need to sanblast them before or just rub the color off ?
And what paint do i need to repaint them ?

Anodize does not rub off. Sandblast it.

Do you use brakes? If you do, you might want to consider powdercoating or just have them re-anodized the color you want.

sandblast it and paint it with a good spray paint, like montana for example, any spray paint between 3 and 8 euros will get the job done, i painted my rims in march and the paint is in a pretty good condition. also, you dont need to unlace the wheel, unles your spokes arent black, then you should unlace it.

You could also do this if you have a big enough container for your rim to fit in.

If you run brakes, get new rims or get it re-anodized.

If not, I have rattlecanned rims in the past. I just clean them well, let them dry, spin them and paint em from about 8-10 inches away to paint evenly.
