blackout?

I'm fairly new to this forum. I am looking for some opinions on if I should black out my wheels or leave them as they are. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Can never go wrong with black! Lol. And welcome to the forum. You could plasti dip them black then if you decide you don't like it, just peel the plasti dip off and it will be like it never happened.

I have never tried the plasti dip. Sounds like a good idea.

It's cheap, durable and very easy to work with. I plasti dipped my grille about 3 months ago and so far it's held up through power washing and about 10 car washes. But peels right off if you want.

I would leave them as they are. Black really does not go well with that green

Wow i didnt even know about plasti dip i just watched youtube videos and it looks awesome and easy to do. I am about to order some right now. Been wanting to paint my wheels forever and i got quoted for 275. I can do this for about 50 bucks my self and even take it off if i dont like it.


I love you man.

The only down side to plasti dip is that it's

A) a pain to keep clean
B) looks tacky if done in a rush

I was doing that blackout theme with my 94 also and I plasti dipped my stock wheels and they looked good. But I would say a set of cobras or after market rims look a lot better and you can put bigger tires.

Looks a lot cleaner and if you really want to get a set of wheels that are already black

Black wheels were cool....until they were so common you could order the "black out" option at Ford. Everyone and their mother has black rims now. On some cars they look great, but the murdered out look is getting a tad dated.

Personally I like your car as is. If you want a change throw some plasti-dip on there and live with it for awhile. Can always peel it off. The above poster mentioned Cobra wheels...I second this!

blackout?

Was gonna go all black on my wheels but decided I like some contrast so I picked these up. Like the matte black and silver mix and how it matches the car. Click image for larger version

But I do also recommend plasti dip. Especially to try the idea out at least.

Blacked out wheels seem to be overdone now
