I have a 2011 pilot with steel wheels. They're getting a little rusty.
Anyone have a suggestion for me?
Do I paint them, if so what color?
I have a dark gray pilot.
Anything would be helpful and appreciated.

What exactly do you mean by a little rusty? Rusty as in a little surface rust or rusty as in all over rust that penetrates the joints.

Surface rust, I would pick a color and have them powder coated.

Really rusty down into the joints I would examine them very carefully and consider new wheels.

I'd dump the steel ones and buy some new alloy wheels. Or you could always go to www.car-part.com and see if you can find a good used set of Honda alloy wheels that will fit your year model. Listed under Axle and Brakes > Wheel (Display w image)

Agreed Why not upgrade to some nice Alloys ? I keep my steel ones for winter they have more weight to them .

Thanks. I'll stay with the steel wheels. I was just trying to spruce up the vehicle.

You never explained what you meant by rusty. Seriously rusty wheels can and do fail.

People paint wheels. Maybe some photos of what you got, someone can give you some tips

Steel wool the rims to get rid of the rust. Use rust converter primer. Then spray them with an automotive paint. A good clear coat couldnt hurt either. U can slide cards index/deck between the rim and tire to keep the tire from getting paint on it
