Cool Plasti Dip Wheels

I had always wanted to paint my rims but wasn't sure if I wanted to do black.... Plasti Dip was an easy way to see how it looked without any worry... I'm pretty much sold now on painting or powder coating the rims matte black.. I'm going to leave the plasti dip on there until I get new tires (~ 1 year) & paint them then.

You can dip the entire wheel in plastic? Who does it?

Looks good, black door spears or no door spears. I think the chrome has gotta go.

yea, i need another can to do the spears. They are definitely NOT coming off... they've saved my doors countless times from dings from idiots swinging their car doors open. I'm gonna do the skid plate of the bull bar too
