Plasti Dip Wheels

I'm thinking about Dipping my wheels with black and finishing them with the silver metalizer. What do you guys think?

It may look decent, especially if you can't afford a new set of rims, but a new set of rims would look better than any plastidip job and wouldn't fade or peel. Just throwing that out there.

I was thinking the same thing. Might be a better idea to buy new rims and sell your old ones on Craigslist. Then again, my friend plastidipped the rims on his Honda and they look pretty sweet.

Don't get me wrong though, do what you want to do, and with plastidip you can always remove it.

My point was, don't just plastidip your wheels and expect them to be as good as someone's matte black bullits from AM.

I completely agree, I'm just a little tight on cash right now. This is just a short term arrangement...

Dip doesnt fade. If it peels then its user error when washing or the user using the wrong cleaners. Mine have been dipped for almost a year and they still look like new.

Then I say go for it, definitely. It should be fun, and it'll give you a little experience with it. Don't forget to come back and show off how it went if you do.

Hey guys, I have a question. When you guys plastidipped your rims while they were still bolted on did you paint the inner barrels, if so how?

I can't answer that, but I can say if you opt to paint your wheels while still on the car, be careful not to get overspray on your pretty paint (use painter's tape and newspaper, etc).

It sounds like a good idea. If it ever peels, just respray it. But if you decide that you don't want it anymore after doing it, simply peel it off.

that's the beauty of it. you can simply peel it off if you don't like it. I've had mine for 2 years now and it still looks brand new!
