Vinyl on rims?

Anyone put vinyl on their rims instead of painting it?

Theres what im expecting to accomplish lol
thats jus some quick photoshop for an idea..what do u think?

Here's what I did to mine. You can't even tell they are vinyl unless you touch it (which was driving me crazy at the MiFBody show because everyone kept touching my rims instead of asking me about them ). The pics don't really do them justice. It was very easy to do (I think the gills were harder) and I like that it changes the look of the stock rims and I can change it later if I get bored without spending a lot of money.

I got mine from Auto Trim Design. They come with 20 of the plain, 4 RS & 4 SS so you can pick which look you want. They have solid black too, but I liked the faded look ~ it give depth to them (have the faded gills from them too).
