Reversible Rim Paint, Black 193M

I want to paint my rims black, i have the bmw 193m wheels but I'm not sure how it would look. Does anyone have a picture of these in black? is there any temporary paint that I can put on and remove easily just to get a feel for it?

Plasti-dip is very easily removed, as long as there is an even coat. But your wheels will look matte black with a rubbery texture.

hey hey, seems like black 193Ms are becoming more popular!

you lose a lot of the detail of the wheel when going black. but here are mine anyway






















clearly the second shot was taken by a photographer, the others are just my point and shoot so it looks a bit underwhelming.

flat black eh.. gloss looks a million bucks! plus, give it a couple of days and they look flat black once dust builds up so you get the best of both worlds. ill take some dirty pictures and post them if you want. (i dont have my car atm though.) cost for me was 175 aud per wheel (so 700) because i got 4 done at the same time. Properly sanded back, painted, baked in oven etc..

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=400099 is that the one? im not in the usa so i dunno what the plates look like

- I don't mean to be a downer, but the wheels on that car are really dirty. yet they still look decent

I know it sounds crazy but I have seen it done as a temporary measure: vinyl wrap it.

It will not last long but if its purely to see how it looks it will work.

AUD$700 remember, but given current exhange rates its still similar. Roads in Sydney are horrendous so I didn't want ot go down the route of cheap wheels which will get bent easily.
