Default Plasti Dipped my wheels

Well I finally decided to Plasti Dip my wheels yesterday. I think it came out great. I love how different my car looks now with the painted calipers and Plasti Dipped wheels. Here's some pics for your viewing pleasure. What do you guys think? Oh, and please forgive me for the dirty car, it will be washed .

Looks great. Masked mine off and did mine back in October and it's stayed grey since. Takes a good month or so to harden so stay away from major cleaning procedures. Mine show no sign of wear. Awesome!

Thanks! Thanks a lot for the tip as well! I'll keep that in mind as I wash the car.

previously did mine for a couple months or so before having them powdercoated. The finish is nice, but good luck keeping them clean brake dust will make them turn a brownish, purpleish, gray color.

Nope, I plastidipped right over it and removed it once it was dry. It's really easy to just remove it.
