Seriously as much hate that there is for Plastidip, you can buy a can for less than 20 bucks and paint your wheels yourself. If you dont like the black, it just peels right off and youre back to the stock silver color. I will probably do this to my wheels when I get tired of them being silver. ha. If you like the black, then you could have them painted permanently.

I powdercoated mine (sorry not your color) I couldn't be happier with mine, more of satin black than full matte so they have a bit of a sheen to them.

Thank you!!!! Nice username too
I'm going to get mine painted, rather than powder coated... A little less expensive... Hopefully same quality...

hah! didn't see your username, you may like my plate too:



anyways, I'm not sure what you are going to pay for painting but if I would have brought JUST my wheels to the guy I got mine powdercoated at it would have been like $300. I think powdercoating will hold up/last longer than painting. Post pics once you get them done though!

Will do (if I go thru with it). Labor is probably less expensive in Wisconsin, compared to NY, but this pretty reliable place is doing it for $400, drop the car off at 8:30 am and pick it up same day around 5. Now trying to decide whether flat black or gloss.... TOUGH DECISIONS!
