Black wheel coating?

What's everyone think about wheel coating? I want black rims and thinking about getting some FR500's with tax return here in a few weeks. I've had a few friends use the Dupli-Color black wheel coating though and am considering just using it on my stock rims. Not sure how it stands against rain and wash once its on? It would definitely help save money by being $12 for the paint instead of $120+ a rim if I buy black rims. Think it would also help cover the light road rash I have here and there. Hmmmm.....

DO NOT SPRAY PAINT IT!!! Plasti dip bro, looks nice and if u don't like it then peel it right off! It holds up to all weather also very nicely

Plasti-dip is a type of rubber coating in aerosol can form. It can be bought for roughly $6 at most Lowes and Home Depots. It dries relatively quickly to a matte black finish, and stays pretty well unless you want it off in which case a little elbow grease and time can pull it off completely. I did my rims months ago and it's still holding up well!

Re: Black wheel coating?

Those do look good. Is it only Matte black? I'm looking for more of a glossy black. Matte looks too dry to me.

i dont think ull get the gloss black ur looking for by painting ur wheels. i say go for those fr500's they look cool. the little stock wheels on the six looks real weak. i think using plasti dip looks good on the bullets.

Just buy some black rims. But don't wax them. Black rims only need detailing. You'll love those FR500s. Trust me. What's up with the black rims lately? Lol. I think I might go black chrome next hopefully it stays true to my car. Well what do y'all think?

I want black saleens. Staggered. 18x9 front and 18x10 rear.

Black or black chorme?

I'd thought I'd give blackedout a little bling. But I must go with the black. What about break caliber color?

There is a glossier you can buy that is a plastidip product as well. It gives it a pretty good shine. You could also spray a later of clear on top of the plastidip but it will make removal harder. Plastidip is great stuff. Check out dipyourcar.com

Re: Black wheel coating?

I just looked at O'Reilley's, they have something from Dupli-Color called Shadow that's a chrome black. Would those work you guys think or would they dry weird?

I've seen it before. Its really hard to work with and you really need to scuff your wheels up a lot to get it to stick.

I'd be safe with plasti dip before anything. No changing your mind for the most part with spray paint. If set in your ways tho go ahead..

I painted my rims black.. For all of about $50. If you know what you are doing they will look good. It's a very long painstaking process though. Took me about 12 hours to do all 4 rims and that was even alittle too fast.

1. Clean the rims
2. Sand down the rims with multiple different levels
3. Clean the rims again
4. Apply 2 coats of primer
5. Apply 3 coats of paint
6. Apply 2 coats of clearcoat
7. Give plenty of time to dry completely before driving (24hours atleast)

The finished look will be good. If you need names of which paints to buy I can tell you. I used simple spray paints for the whole process. 1 year later they still look like I did it yesterday.

What kind of paint?

I think I'm just gonna take the loss and go for some kind of paint myself. Even with tax money I don't want to put out $500+ on 4 rims
