I probably would have left them alone or if money was the reasoning for the plasti-dip then I would have gone with some stock steelies. IMO Plasti-dip just doesn't look good on 1st gen wheels. It looks great on 2nd gen wheels though.

The plastidip was the easiest fix just to clean it up a little. the wheels were all pitted & eaten up from salt. figured i'd try the stuff out & see how it went. if it hold up decently i will be doing the chrome bumpers at some point.
