    Hey I thought i would give you guys an update on the Plastidip I did on mine.

    If you do white or any brighter color, make sure you do enough coats to get a really smooth finish. this way when you clean the car afterwards, the brake dust doesn't settle in the dips and such of a rough finish. I went and peeled mine off because it was doing that and I didn't do enough coats. So it's back to the silver rims for me.

    But like I said, if you do enough coats to get a really nice and smooth finish, then it will be like you powder coated them and they will be easy to clean.

    Just take your time. Thin coats don't miss spots. You should be good. Plasti dip is very forgiving lol

    I did at least 5-6 coats with about 30-45 minutes between. Like Joker said, thin coats so it doesn't run. I've had quite a few compliments on mine. The stock wheels were actually easier than the 12 spoke wheels I use for autocross

    Can someone make a fake picture or a photo shopping picture of an Ingot Silver with glossy black stock wheels? I may do this...

    And from what I've learned from other sites, don't even bother protecting the tires from the spray, as it just falls of eventually...but it seems there should be some cut off point so the excess on the tires doesn't pull the dip from the wheels as it degrades at high speeds, theoretically

    Please uncover your center caps. Should add some nice matching blue as well.

    the line between the tires and the rims /is/ the cutoff point. Plastidip "cuts itself" when you paint over little tiny gaps. Unless you straight up put the whole can on the gap itself, it will cut and you don't have to worry about the plastidip on the tires. I would suggest removing them once dry instead of leaving it on because you don't need little bits of rubber flying off of your wheels. It literally slides right off.

    Excellent...that confirms what I saw from others...now I know it is needless to separate the edge of the rim from the tire

    Where are you guys buying your plasti dip from? It's expensive here in Toronto.
