Thanks! Did you paint them on the car or did you jack up the car and remove the wheel and spray them?

I bought them and dipped them when they were off the car...it only took like 2 hours total. Plasti dip dries real quick

the clear coat is from dipyourcar.com or local pepboys will carry it now. Its called silver metallic clear coat. There are other color metalics that they sell now, but silver is the best to get a nice dark grey with some shine. They have anthrecite gray dip, but I wanted a little darker so I went with the matte black with metallic clear

Thanks. I'm looking at like a charcoal with a shine like that. Trying to get almost a titanium look.

thats the finish I had. Kind of titanium looking, but i will advise you to get the brake dust pro that everyone buys to clean the wheels. Its real tough with just off the counter cleaning products to get the dip back to the look it had when it was first applied. I used brake dust remover/wheel cleaner and a brush and it did a good job but the BDP works the best
