I want to paint, but i often want different color's so a wrap would be ideal.

even if i have to do it every season. dont care.....could also change the color every season too.

Very cool.

I think you should give some vinyl shops a call and see if they do it.

Yeah this is by far the easiest and cheapest option.

For wheels, I think plastidip is a better option. And my car is wrapped and normally I hate plastidip. But I don't think that vinyl is a good option for wheels, too many edges where the vinyl can lift and peel.

You buy a nice car to plastidip it. It's like putting yellow tint on your HL's.

Paint or vinyl please, don't use the rubber coating crap. Personally I would paint it, but plasti dip is a good trail error thing to see what it would look like then remove it.

Honestly Plasti dip in my book is fine only for winter use so they don't start corroding. Then peel it off for summer use or use it just for winter with a dedicated pair.

For an entire car, yes by for wheels, it's a different story.

Buy the legit stuff from adopt outcast.com and get the softening spray so removal is easier.
