Plastidipped(painted) my SS wheels satin black.

I broke the front bead with my tire machine so I could get the edges of the rim better and make it easier to tape off.







Nice heater since its 8 degrees outside.











This is what I used.


And its completely reverse able. After its all dry you can peel it off like latex. And its very durable as well. You can hit it with a power washer and it stays on just fine. There is no prep besides spraying them off with water and wiping them down. Spray it on the rims and let it dry 30 minutes between coats. I did 4 coats and I love the look. Cant wait to put them on my Summit White car with flat black stripes.

Durability is no worry as long as you do enough coats. This stuff can take a power washer at a car wash. I dont take my camaro there but I have a SVT focus and I painted my euro rims with this and it held up to delta sonic car wash and a pay and spray.

This could be a great alternative to winter rims. Although if it worked at protecting the rims it would become a yearly ritual

Like, the whole car?
I was thinking about using this instead of buying those vinyl stick on black outs for the LS7 look.

This would be a much better option than the way i was gonna do it. I was gonna sand and prep them then paint. I like the reversible part.

Did a quick search in Google for "Plasti dip spray". Says they have it at O'Reilly and Ace Hardware. I would imagine you could find it locally at an Auto Parts store.

Worst case:

So does this have a rubber consistency? Please post pics when they are mounted.

They look nice, no doubt about it.

However, won't the rubberized paint on the lug nut surfaces reduce or hinder the affectiveness of a properly torqued nut? The paint must not be that good for fasteners. It's like having a thin rubber washer between your nut and surface?
