Plasti dipped 162 wheels

Not sure exactly how I feel about them, but I think I'll keep them like this for a little while.

Wheels look pretty good, make the chrome and silver trim items stand out though.

Sucks that you lost control and ended up on the grass while posing for the pictures.

It's the glare and the shade in different spots. I thought the same but when I looked at them in different angles it looked the same. That's 4 coats matte black and 2 coats of the silver metalizer.

pics aren't close enough to critique the workmanship, but that makes the boring 162s look a lot better...


I like it! good color...


Be very interested to see how they hold up to brake dust etc..

I'll be trying this next spring.

How are you washing your wheels now? I presume you can't scrub them with a brush anymore?
