Want black rims!!

I've recently purchased an 2014 mustang 5.0 (not the one in my profile pic) it's has the original wheels and i like those pretty well. Just looking for info on how to get those painted/dipped. (Don't be the guy that says search forums I have didn't find what I was looking for.) also I wanna go with offset wheels later on suggestions would be appreciated

I'd get them powdercoated. Or if you want to see what they look like black then get about 3 cans of plasti dip and do that.

Plasti dip with the glossifier. That way if you don't like it, just peel and remove.

Two cans of Plasti-Dip...$12
If you like the black you can powdercoat down the road. Just figure Plasti-dip will prob last 1 year...but So easy!!

I plastdipped my FP8 wheels about 2 months ago and it looked great, however I got my car detailed last week and the dip ended up peeling right off when they blasted my wheels. Ive never had any major issues with my badges or anything like that before, so Im thinking maybe I just didnt do the wheels well enough due to never having done wheels before. I used a little less than a can per wheel. At very least its worth shot. If you dont like it you are only down about 20 bucks. Ill probably try again soon.

I used about 1 can for 2 wheels, so 2 cans for all 4 (with a bit left over). I'd start with maybe 5 cans if you were to do wheels and your badges and emblems.

Plastidip is pretty good stuff. It's almost been a year with mine (and they are holding up great thru the salt armageddon that is Chicago winter). I pressure wash my rims every 2 weeks, too.
Make sure your rims are spotless - actually use the rubbing alcohol on them - before dipping them. The cleaner they are, the better your coats will stick.

6 bucks at Lowes, near the rest of the spray paints.

Agreed with Rynarok. 5 cans should probably do the trick. Not sure about the gloss though.

I'd have just got the AM 18" staggered black 2010s for $500 shipped with the forum discount code if you were going to pay to have your stock ones powdercoated...

These.

Around me its $100 a rim to get them blasted/coated. Although if you wanted to stay with the tires you have on right now I guess that would be more economical than another $500-$700 on tires.

^^^ This one sentence is basically saying you didn't make a good choice, and my way would be better. No matter how you read it, that's the statement. To those that have talked with me on here, or have been around any of my posts, it's very known that I'm not a confrontational person.
Clearly this is the type of thing that brought the invention of the saying " opinions are like **********, we all have 1".
When the time comes, I suggest you log onto AM and order those 18" wheels for the $500 and have them put on your car. I didn't want those wheels, therefore, it was never an option. I wanted the 19" wheels, and I truly like the look of the stock ones. So the factory GT Premium 19" wheels were the only option
I mentioned that a friend did the powdercoating for me. I paid $150 bucks to have all 4 done. I wanted a stickier tire, therefore, no matter which wheels I went with, the tires were getting replaced. so the tires aren't really a part of this equation. so, as an end result, I paid $300 for stock 19's with tires. I bought new tires, which would happen no matter what, and I paid $150 for the coating. I'm $450 into the wheels, and I have what I think is a damn nice looking wheel, that isn't a nightmare to balance or has any runout issues that can be found in the aftermarket world. The stock 18's and tires are up for sale, and will offset this expense nicely when they sell. To each his own......this was my way.

Wow ok didn't mean to ruffle any feathers. Did not know you had a friend who did it for so cheap or I wouldn't have said anything. You are right to each his own.

I also DID almost order the black 2010s which would have been around $400 for a SN95 backspacing and if I had decided I wanted black rims I would have.

Scotty I've talked with you on several occasions and it's always been nothing but easy going. I think it's the way it was worded that poured the salt into the wound so to speak. No hard feelings. I'm not mad at ya.
