on is fine and easier IMO.... get some big go fish or skip-bo cards, and tuck them in the lip of the tire where it meets the wheel... standby for pic of example.

edit: here ya go!

I was going to Plasti-Dip mines today but decided I want to remove them. Was going to do them with wheels on but changed my mind last second. I think it's easier to remove the wheels, my friend is a painter and always removes the wheels for painting.

Yeah I'm sure we can work something out, plastidip is super easy to use. If you mess up you can wipe it off (if you just sprayed it) or hit it with a pressure washer and it'll come off
