People have, only hard part is that you have to order the plasti-dip online, Home Depot only sells the black in a rattle can.
I looked at some wheels with the white and I'm not a fan. Also think it would be hard to keep it looking good with brake dust.

I like the look of the satin black, but with the white stripes I would have stayed polished

I'm not changing my stripes, I like my creamcycle.but it does make exterior mods challenging. I don't have my windows tinted, which is next, so maybe that will help balance it a bit....
What happens when you change tires...will it show marks around the rim?

I might change it to the smoke when the tires come off in the fall, but so far, people seeing it in person love how they look, even with the white stripes....

2 1/2. I looked at them today out of the sun and can see some spots along the edge that could have used a bit more, but I don't think anyone would notice.

I don't think so....the nice thing about the product is that if they rub or get marked up, you can do it again. Total cost was $40 which included 3 packs of cards and extra rags.

I took my rims off half a dozen times with mine and never had any problems. No marks or messed up dip. You have to be careful each time though and when you finish dipping them, make surr you let them dry and cure for a few hours before you reinstall them.

From my Note

You did a great job. I've also seen the dip used on the bow ties. I'd love to play with Plasti Dip but I'm chicken to try due to messing up. I ordered bow tie blackouts and gill decals online for 140 dollars. ( two sets in fear of messing up) the cards were a great idea also. Nice to change your look once in a while. The beauty is that you can change back at any time!

Well thank you!

I mentioned this to my boys (boyfriend and brother) after we had done the wheels that we should do the bow ties as well - they loved the idea, until I researched how to get them off the car and they both said eff it.....(hangovers are not good motivators for diy projects)

Don't be afraid of it, it was stupid easy to do as long as you know how to spray paint. We hadn't planned on doing it, my brother has a jeep he takes off roading and he did his. Loved it and decided I should do mine when my bf started to change over my wheels (winter-summer). We covered the car to protect from overspray as it was really windy Saturday and did the wheels in the garage.

Sheena, it looks good! If you want to try a slightly glossy look on the wheels, you can use the glossifier. It adds a bit of pop without going overboard. I do like the look though!

Thanks Tom!! I like them flat but that may help balance the look a bit...hmmm I think I jynxed spring tho...bloody snow....

my tires are running weird, hard to explain, but overall feel off. I still have to reset my tsp and I can't find find my tire pressure gauge....but I don't think it's air. Doesn't feel like a balancing issue either but could be wrong....I know the tires run different in the cold, but I park in a heated parkade, was there for 11 hours and when I left they feel the same as first thing in the morning.

Any suggestions? Oops just high jacked my own thread...lol

Oh, I can tell that difference quite clearly between the 2.

Shaky, but we've checked to make sure they are on properly. The ride isn't smooth like I remember, but I didn't have the car this time last year, so not sure if it's temp related....

I can say, I haven't felt like flooring it in corners as it just feels off. Called the dealer and they said they'll send a foreman or someone out for a ride with me...just need to find time to stop in...

Might be a dumb question, but are you sure the tire shop put the wheels on the correct ends of the car? LOL

I know my car feels different when I put the performance ones on as well. The winters are so sticky and soft, it's like putting the car on rails afterward. Good call on getting the foreman to go for a ride. If you were off the next couple of days, I would lend what little expertise I may have. LOL

BTW...taking my car in tomorrow to Southgate. The AC belt snapped off. Now I know that doesn't just happen, so I'm pretty sure I'm looking at a new compressor as well. I know it snapped off because it didn't take the main serpentine belt off with it.

Also...last Thursday, I was sitting in a parking lot and a little asian guy pulled in beside me and threw his door open so hard, I thought a car had hit me. Imagine my displeasure to see a dent in my LR 1/4 panel above the wheel. 3" long and 1/2" deep!

I explained rather sternly that he was paying for it! Got his information. Took it to the dent clinic and they said it will not look the same again. :( Said they can get most of it out, but it will only be about 80% perfect. It is in the worse possible spot ever! So...I'll get a quote from Southgate to make it perfect and he can pay for it!
