Not a huge fan of textured flat blat wheels overall; though I'm sure they look pretty mean in person.
Mean indeed! They look like carbon wheels.

So didn't do the gloss but after a long day i got it done. I'm glad it peels right off cuz i messed up one of the rims took me 2 hours to completely peel it off and start over. after about 10 hours of work this is the final result..

If you spray it on incorrectly it can end up extremely grainy or textured or chunky, rather than just slightly or barely noticeably. In this case you need to start over, there's no other option.

The can started leaking and dripping on the rim. When i tried to spot it up took up a bunch of surrounding area. After respraying it look horrible so we peeled it off. The removal process isn't difficult, I believe it took so long because of the design on the rim.

Unknown but I have a feeling that the high temps created would be problematic.

This might be a fix for the crappy BMW rubberized interior parts too.

Very cool but I have a feeling that it would be a real PIA to remove them from ZCP wheels....
