Plastidip Wheels

Didn't know how this would turn out, but I'm really happy with the results. It's been about a week now and the plastidip is still going strong. I'll update this thread and let anyone know how they hold up if your interested in doing this too





Thanks to sockmonkey for the third break light decal! Came out good!

Interested to see how it holds up. Did you take the wheels off the truck to do it or did you just leave em on?

I plan on doing it to mine as well. Perfect way to see how I like the black look before going permanent.

They will hold up. I plasti-dipped the wheels on my wife's 12 offroad almost 2 months ago and they are holding up just fine. Your truck looks good btw

id like to see how they're holding up in a area where the roads get covered with salt/grit, i have my doubts about them surviving the sandblasting they'd get, that's why i've been holding off on doing mine
