Plasti-dip wheels?

Figured I want to try the 'new craze' and do my wheels. But I'm curious as to how they would look

I don't have any up close so the old pics are as close as I get till tomorrow, I havnt seen any black versions of these before so I'm just being curious as to what you guys and galls thought. Also, anyone know about starfire sx 5000 tires? That's what's wrapped around the wheel and iv tried looking them up but have pulled up nothing. They(along with the wheels) were on it when I bought it. And I don't know anything about either of them, if anyone could shed some light I'd appreciate it!

No harm in trying, IMO I think they look great as they are.

I like em as is too. The plastidip will make them look like cheap steel wheels missing some hub caps. But the great thing about plastidip is you can peel it off if you don't like it so no harm in trying it out.

I was thinking that as well for a minute. But if I do dip it I'm getting blacked out, trimming the outer part so there's a little metal showing and then if they have white do a part of it and let my artist buddy do some tribal stuff for me. I'll figure it all out by trial and error. Haha
