Winter setup. Plasti-diped Laredo X wheels with Nokian tires.





Took the pics right as it was getting dark. The black on brown looks pretty cool. I'll try and get better pictures in the daylight. The tires are great. A tad louder than stock at certain speeds, but it'll do for a winter tire. The tire is the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R SUV.

pic of the tread.

I like the idea of Plasti-diping my limited's wheels for the winter. Do you have a write-up as how you went about it? Did you spray them while the wheels were still on the Jeep? Just tape off the tire and lugs? Thanks for any advice.

I sprayed them before putting them in the vehicle. I just used painter's tape around the edge between the wheel and tire and used some trash bags to cover the sidewall. I used 4 cans or so and used a multi coat method. I made sure not to completely cover the wheel with the first two coats. Just get a nice base started. You should still see some silver after the 2nd coat. I waited about 10 mins between coats and let them dry a full 24 hours before installing them.



This is the method I used to spray. Skip to 2 mins in to avoid product placement and tire masking talk.
