Default Should I Plastidip My OEM Wheels?

hey guys so its about 1 oclock and i have been on the forum and seeing how easy it is to plastidip pretty much anything u can imagine and i see some people have plastidipped theyre tires black and it looks awesome! so my question is should i plastidip my oem 18s? the rims look real nice from far away for being stock rims and they look pretty big too. i have a white 05 how do you guys think it would look if i painted them black or any kind of dark color. suggestions would be great. also, if i dont like it, i can always just peel if off right?? photoshop would be a great help. thanks in advance !

Who's the freaking moron that plastidipped their tires?? Wow! I thought I've heard it all. Note to self, you are not as crazy as previously thought.

What's next? Someone gets tired of condoms and plastidips their dick??

You have a white car and you want black wheels. Why do you need a photoshop, it's been done millions of times, white car with black wheels. Just look at the top of the page, there's a white car with black wheels.

Do it.. Looks very good and changes the look of the car.. Tape off tire and do multiple light coats.. Goes on very smooth and looks great. It's a flat black look.. Wish I had some pics on here to show you mine. Also they hold up amazing. I did mine before this terrible snow filled winter and mine when hosed off or wiped down look as if I did them this morning. This stuff is amazing. Highly recommended.

Duplicolor is the SH! when it comes to the cheaper aerosol cans (Rustoleum and Krylon both SUCK when it comes to quality and variety IMO).

Unless a person is willing to spend 20+ on SEM products for a SINGLE CAN. Than Duplicolor will be the best bang for your buck when it comes to painting with aerosol cans.

i plastidip my factory rims before winter. Holding up great so far. NE had about 10 storms this year also. But I have a black maxima and I dont really like black on black as much as i thought i would. So when i put on my aftermarket rims back on in the summer, Im going to remove the plastidip.

Everybody always mentions how fast it is to take off this plasticdip. Which makes me think it looks cheap and sprays on like crap.
Can someone show me a picture that is not taken from 6feet away to see what it really looks like in person. Not just the best pic to show off on the interwebz.

LOL!
Can someone show me a picture that's closer than 4' away. I tried some paint like the plasti dip years ago called "wrinkle finish" and it sprayed like crap and looked worse to the naked eye. It also seemed to create cracks if the paint was thinner in an area..
