just plastidip my wheels and have mix feelings. Its nice but leaning towards original look. Good thing about plastidip is that you can remove it.



before and after, sorry for some crappy pics

Personally, I like the original look better, especially with your dark body color.
yea i feel ya... i think if I'd had it powder coated gloss gunmetal gray it would of blend better... but hey, its plastidip , cheap man powder coat lol

I'm trying to find red PlastiDip for sale somewhere. No one seems to know what I'm talking about at Big Box stores. (What department is it in?)

Different looks, but I like both.

I know what you mean. When I bought mine at the Big Box, I asked where it was and was told they didn't carry it. I think I found it in the paint section. There was an area for specialty paints.

That looks killer! You just need to throw a little glossifier on there, thats why the 1st time you probly didnt like them. I love the silver lip though. I am actually about to do mine. I love plasti dip I just did my rear badge gas door and front bumper turned out beautifully. Yep at home depot its in the paint department. But if you cant find it order it from dipyourcar.com.

That is pretty badass looking with the flat finish look. Though your wheels looked great before too like BrickPig said. Personally I hate the machined lip look but that's just me.

I can understand some looks are more or less desireble to others. In this case.. its the best of both worlds...but that's just me :) :cheers:

W/ the dark color, the more gray shade gives a good, complimentary accent hue.



But, of course, I may be bias . . . they look familiar, if a larger rim w/ smaller profile rubber:
(Mine, in an old pict)
