White on white: Stock 264s

Just plastidiped my stock wheels white to get a feel on how it would look. Plastidip can easily be peeled off so I figured what the heck and decided to give it a try.

Posting this to show others that may be interested in doing the same thing or just curious on how it looks. Thanks.

Nothing against the look of white wheels, but dang you're going to be cleaning them all the time.

Thanks! I'm considering getting them powder coated for a more permanent job. The Plastidip finish is starting to peel now from cleaning it. If any of you guys do decide to try out plastidip, the cleaner that works the best is simple green and a soft rag like a microfiber.

I'm not overseas anymore. That plate is considered a "vanity plate" now. lol

I really like the white on white look and considered it for a long time before eventually going with silver. Anything to be different

I guess like most people, it was the thought of having to clean them more often that made the decision, but so far I am a little "OCD" when it comes to brake dust on my Advans and 80% of the time I clean them thoroughly every week. I wonder if I would have cleaned white wheels any more than I already do?

How are you finding the brake dust issue compared to silver?

Honestly, I only clean them once a week when I wash my car. Brake dust is not that bad bit I also have brakes that don't emit a lot of dust. Super easy to clean just like the stock silver. Spray some simple green, wipe off with a microfiber and rinse. No scrubbing needed.
