Hey all i am looking at polishing my factory 5 star aluminum rims and im going to paint the recessed black, anyone ever try it and if so how did it turn out....
silvernclean said:Try using the plasti dip method b4 u start painting to see if u like the idea 1st. If u don't like then u can peel the plasti dip off. There are tons of threads on plasti dipping wheels and all sorts of other things.
silvernclean said:If ur gonna clear them yourself go to advance etc... and get the clear for wheels. Don't use normal clear. the heat from the wheels and abuse of driving will make the clear peel off. My 2 cents.

03TB93 said:did u plasti dip the SS wheels? whatever u did to them they look sick black like that love the white on black look
03TB93 said:man they look great for sure.. did u put like 100 coats on? i probably put about 10 coats on my wheels and i can still see little specks if aluminum coming thru. doesnt look bad at all, gives them a cool look. i was wondering if i should completly put a thick coat of it on though,, thinking it would make them more durable? any thought on the thickness?
