PlastiDipped My Wheels

Washed my car today and I was feeling a little adventurous, so I decided to plastidip my wheels. What do you guys think? I need to redo it tomorrow if I want to keep it on, so I wanted to get your opinion on it before I work on it tomorrow.

First picture is a little clearer, but the hubcaps aren't revealed in this picture.


Hubcaps revealed


Appreciate your feedback, guys. Thanks!

Not my cup of tea. I think it really makes a nice car look cheap. At least it's easy to peel off.

Ehhh black on white just makes the car look blah from the side. Might as well be rocking 18" hubcaps in black... there would hardly be a difference between the two.

Yup, sprayed with the wheels on. Just got a trash bag to cover up my brakes/calipers

Thanks for the feedback guys. It definitely didn't look as good as I hoped it would. I think I'll keep it on for a week, and if I still don't feel it, I'll peel it off.

good job on the plastidip. your wheels plus black tires don't have much contrast since they're very similar in color. maybe photos with more light? however, kudos for doing it yourself.

i dipped my LM reps last year from gunmetal to matte black. the polished lips between the black tire and matte black spokes definitely broke it all up a little.
