Plasti Dip my Wheels?

Due to being exposed to a weird winter storm in october of 2012 my wheels have pitted a little bit, i have been thinking of plasti dipping them to either matte black, or black gloss?

Tell me what you think i should do...

Can't go wrong with plasti-dip. Its reversible and cheap and proven effective.

Buy four cans do one see what you think. Most people will resume and do the remaining three.

I did atleast

Re: Plasti Dip my Wheels?

Those look like status dynasty's........

mine used to be flat black- never really looked clean to me. my inserts are chrome, don't know how all black would look, maybe too much.
heres how mine looked - the chrome edge is trim, it wasn't masked off

According to this video, they recommend you should have a few layers of matte, before you apply the gloss. Hopefully this helps

It's so easy to do. Do it yourself. Watch a couple
