After getting some motivation from killawaah, I went ahead and painted my wheels black with plastidip. 4 coats for each wheel and I threw on 2 coats of dupli-color clearcoat just to give them a bit of a satin finish and to help them avoid a hair of brake dust. Plastidip is definitely amazing stuff! What do you guys think?
That looks really good. Have you noticed any chipping of the plasti-dip from possible rocks flying up?? I have always been concerned about that.
No chips or anything as of now. It seems to be pretty solid. I used a deck of cards around the rim of the wheel when I dipped them. I peeled the dip off all the cards but before I did I tried scratching or chipping it off and that stuff holds pretty well. I guess I will see how it goes with time!

Thanks! I should be getting tint tomorrow as well. ^_^
Just came across this now and it looks awesome! I de-badged mine as well in the beginning of this week and it looks so much cleaner now... I took off the plastidip about a month or so, it was a pain in the ass to clean. Lol! I might repaint it again with clear coat over it this time.
