Plastidipped Red

It came out a nice bright red especially in the sun. I used 3 coats of red and one clear. Im very happy with the results and know i will get many looks rocking these. Im blacking out the lower grills and door trim next.

-The center caps are removable..
-You should have painted the inner lugs
-Poor college student? Driving a 335? with 1000 worth of downpipes and 500 chip? ..shouldve bought wheels.
-You need a drop

I salute your pioneering

Poor college student with a 335i? And you cant afford a few more cans of paint? Then you painted them red above all else?

Honestly, this looks terrible. Red plasti-dip is just not ok on the rims. Anything but red.

People are hating right now because you mentioned the word plastidip and college in the same sentence.. If you posted a pic and said you got them powdercoated everyone would like it... They look good, and it's always reversible! Good job!
