    Default painted black stock wheels

    I went ahead and tried the Plasti-Dip spray on one of my stock wheels and I am really debating on actually going through with it with all of them, let me know what you guys think....

    Looks like it has merit. Pull the tape off and put it back on and then post a picture with it installed. Thought about doing the same as the tire wieghts have really messed up the edges on mine.

    I think it looks pretty damn good. If you do want to do the rest, I would take the tires to get re-balanced and have the weights put inside the wheel.

    wow, looks good. That made a big difference. X3 on taking the tape off and puting it back on the truck.

    I like that look. I wonder what it would look like if you left the part between the spokes unpainted, or maybe even the stripe through the middle of the spoke.

    Yeah... Looks great to me, man. I agree, though. Pictures of it on the truck would be awfully helpful.

    x3 on with the pics on the truck....Sometimes with completely black rims, it can make the combination of black tires and totally black rims look ackward.

    Quick tip when working with plasti-dip. Remove the tape and paper before it dries. If you wait until it dries, it'll peel all the work you just did off the wheel......


    Anyway, Looks great. Would love to see it mounted up.
