Plastidipped rims

So I dipped the rims to see if this is the color I would like to powder coat them. Plastidip doesn't really look bad at all if you ask me... As long as it is done right.

Good choice of color!

My only issue is that the color of Plasti Dip fades within 6 months... But then again it is a temporary mod, so can't really complain.

The color is nice too!

Mine were plastidipped too. Only downside is they'll turn brown in the light from brake dust.

18 months no issues

Of course "touch up" is needed after tire change. Breeze to clean.

Do you debead the tire before you spray it? I once saw a wheel where the plastidip shrunk and started to pull off the edges. That's the only thing that kept me from trying it myself.

Nah, just sprayed mine on while still on the car. Really don't see how it's any worse than the spray on brake dust shield. Just make sure to cover your brakes. It comes off really easy once it starts peeling. I had no issues with the 6 months I had it on my wheels, originally I did it to see how my car will look like with black wheels temporarily, ended up keeping it on.

I will be doing this to my ZCP's once my winter rims come off. Figured it would be easier while they're off the car.

Just make sure you put tire shine around the tire and clean the wheel really good. The tire shine allows you to peel it away from the rim extremely easily. Also you would think you would have to stencil around the emblem but it peels off around the emblem perfectly

I want to do this to my wheels. I like the gunmetal look, but don't want to go permanent. Makes me nervous, though. I tried an "experiment" with that Paintshield 5720 (or whatever it was called) stuff on my S5 right before the changeover, and that didn't go over so well... Doh!

I did my 220s over a year ago and they still look okay. I will redo them this year. I just straight used plasti dip spray cans. Turned out great.

haha they look good bro. I also did plasti dip at first to see how well my rims would look black. They came out so good i left them on. Its been about 9 months and they still look good. I do an occasional respray for touch up every 2 months or so.
