Plasti dip rims white... yay or nay?

EDIT: I decided to go ahead and do it, here's how it looks:


I've been getting kinda tired of the black on black (seems kinda played out these days) and I want to sorta retro out the truck a little with the white wheel color. I did a crude mockup and was wondering what y'all think. I figured I could remove it if I just hated it.

As it is now:



Mockup:

I think chrome or polished wheels would give it a good contrast to he all black

Plastidip looks nice until it starts to peel, which it will. I did mine in black for the winter and between snow, ice and light offroad use it was toast. Plastidip also hold in dust and grime so silver or white will be dirty almost as soon as you wash it.

Welp here's how it looks. I'll get better pics tomorrow. I got some armor all wheel protectant for it, we'll see how well it works. Someone on the Subaru forum had good luck with it.

My crappy iPhone camera was really struggling with the white balance so you can't really see any shadows from the caps or lugs or anything. I'll take another better pic later.
