Also, for good clean lines (whether you're using masking tape on tires or the body or w/e) everyone says to pull the tape up while the last coat is still wet. if you wait till it dries you risk tearing it
Thanks, I'll check out the site. Is there any particular brands I should keep an eye out for?

Powder coating iirc is where they electrically charge your rims to attract dry paint dust onto the metal. It looks good but it is permanent (as far as i know, at least as permanent as paint is anyway) The way i look at it is if you plastidip your rims and REALLY like it, then i'd consider getting them powder coated. The cost of powder coating depends on where you go around you vs the cost of plasti-dip is somewhere between $5-$10 per can depending on where you are

I've heard some places do. This guy I am going to does powder coating from 89-125 a wheel depending on size and type. Sometimes a tad more if you have the plastic rivets and such. I got to see wheels he has done and they are well done good quality.

He seems to be rare though as he also has a 2-3 day turn around time. Which is fast also.

Once they're done you should post up some pics, I'd really like to see how they come out.

How does plasti dip react to the wheel polish and tire polish and wheel washes and stuff? Does it get shinny or come off?

I'm not trying to be mean, just honest. I think the black and white are too much of an extreme contrast. But whatever floats your boat.

FWIW - I like it. I was never a fan of the body color breaks between the lights. This kind of hides them.
