Do I need a balance after painting my wheels?

i would think so, unless you unmounted/remounted the tires...

Make it pretty, and she'll think it's fast.

nope you dont need them rebalanced.. paint adds a uniform mass around the whole wheel and even if its a little heavy in one spot there is no way your going to notice it.. trust me i repainted mine twice..

^ I agree. Paint is not heavy enough to change the balance.
