Plasti-dip strikes again!
 
So i used 1 can of plasti dip and it took me about 3 hours to do all 4 wheels. I took them off, taped them up and then sparayed 3 coats of the plasti-dip. Now the after picture was just taken after 2 weeks of being on the rim, so it's been through rain and washes. So overall it's held up really nicely.

Thanks guys. I really thought about doing my roof with it but i think over large surfaces you won't be able to get an even finish. The plasti dip is almost "goopy" that it might come out uneven. Regardless, on a smaller scale it LOOKS SICK!!

The black rims really do suit that color of paint.

Is plasti-dip the stuff that you can remove down the line to reveal the original finish?

^Yeah it peels like a banana if you so want. It's tough as nails too. It's cool stuff. I'm doing mine this next week.

That is pretty awesome really!!! Wonder how long it took the R&D team to make that stuff.

Machinanyc--
Did you take your wheels off to paint them? Or did you just tape it off and tape like you suggested?
