Wink 2 TONE STOCK RS/SS WHEELS? AND PLASTI DIP QUESTION

SO I WANT TO PLASTI DIP MY RS CAMARO WHEELS, MY FIRST QUESTION IS DO YOU THINK THAT IS A GOOD WAY TO GO? DOES IT LAST? DOES IT HOLD UP TO WEAR? ITS ALOT CHEEPER THAN PAINT AND IT CAN PEEL OFF IF I DONT TOTALLY LOVE IT, SO ITS A WIN WIN FOR ME (IF IT WILL LOOK AND PERFORM LIKE REAL PAINT)

--THE NEXT QUESTION IS WHAT STYLE I SHOULD PAINT THEM, THE TWO PHOTOS I GOT FROM THE INTERNET AND IDK IF THEY ARE PLASTI DIP BUT IM JUST LOOKING AT THE STYLE OF THE PAINT.

LET ME KNOW WHATS YOUR FAV OR POST SOME BETTER ONES.

PS. I HAVE A YELLOW CAMARO WITH THE BLACK STRIPES

I think if you did it with Yellow, it would be too much yellow. But I would have to see a photoshop or something. But in the end, like everyone else will tell you, its your car

those are definitely NOT plastidip. Those are glossy and smooth, only get that from paint. Plastidip will be textured.

Plastidip will next be textured if you know how to paint. If you know how to paint it will just as smooth as paint but in matte instead of gloss

I've been using plastidip for a while now, and consider myself decent at it. I really don't see how you would get it to the level of smoothness that the second picture is. Sure, you can get it less textured, but not that smooth.

It'll look good. Just do us a favor and turn off caps lock. We don't like being yelled at.
I want to do mine to see how it looks.
