Anyone done this?

Has anyone plasti dipped or powdercoated these rims? I have been looking and haven't found any pictures.

I have done it. It does not look like crap. To each is there own opinion. It looks better than stock, but not as good as bullitts. I like it in back with the bigger tires more than the front too.

Here you go.

A friend dipped his, they did look like crap.

As to the guy above me, yours actually look quite good (maybe even better than stock).

Maybe it just looks better with a black car. Trust me, I would love to get some new wheels but just do not have the funds right now. So I did what I could with what I have. It looks like nice crap.

Naw, they do look good. Whoever (or if you did) did them looks like they did a really good job. A lot of the plastidip jobs I see look faded, completely flat, and just cheap and ghetto. So a for you.

Your stang looks very nice as well.

Maybe I've just seen some really bad jobs... I'm a senior in high school (last day is tomorrow), and of course us kids get our first cars and go mod-crazy, also take into mind how cheap plastidip is vs a new set of wheels or professionally painted emblems from AM are. Yeah, it doesn't turn out very well I'd say 9/10 times (also speaking on jobs I've seen online too).

Personally, I don't have any matte black accents on my car but if I did they'd be installed professionally by my tint guy with vinyl or my body guy with paint.

I do not think it looks absolutely amazing. Like I said, I would get new wheels if I had the money. It has always been GO before SHOW for me.

Cannot justify spending money on stuff that makes me look faster than I am. I would rather be faster than I look.

I've never seen those specific wheels dipped in person but I used to have dipped bullit wheels and they looked sick. Don't know if that other guy is just talking about those specific wheels or all dipped wheels but he's wrong if he's saying the latter. To answer your question. Just buy the cans of plasti dip and try it out. If you don't like it, it peels right off with no damage

They look way better being black. I think they go good with the car for now.

I agree with both of you guys. Looks good for now, and to the OP it peels right off like vinyl.
