There's a guy in town who has the same '13 wheels. He Plasti dipped them and since its such a big surface, they look dirty all the time.

Personally, I would leave them as they are. Just save up and get some wheels you want.
I just thought painting them with some free paint i got here stored would relieve me till then, amd MAYBE HAVE A BETTET RESALE VALUE? LOL

I guess it depends on how good of a job the paint is? I know most rims that get a rattle can paint job get messed up buy tire installers, if you should ever have a flat repaired.

I prefer a simpler look, I think for the most part, OEM looks better than after market. I have the 13 GT rims, and although I like the 12s better, I think they look great by themselves.

My stock 17s are getting plasti dipped soon, because they look like junk, in my opinion. No disrespect intended, just voicing the view.

Hell if you've got the know how then do it. I like Black on Black but it's everywhere now a days. Gunmetal would be different.

I'd say just dip em, that way if you dont like it you can just peel it off.

I dipped my stock wheels on my 09 and thought they looked badass at first, but then they started look extremely tacky.

Im going to dip my 13' base GT wheels this weekend with grey and see how it looks, ill post pics as well

i'd do quite a few, and make sure you dont go thin on it, taking the plastidip off was alot harder in areas where I didnt do a nice thick few coats. I will probably also look at the gun metal this week/weekend -have a black 2013 so should be similar! haha
