    So I am thinking about spraying my stock wheels with flex seal to black it out. It seems to be a cheap alternative to buying new wheels and I figured it would hold better than spray paint which chips off. Does anyone have any experience with spraying flex seal on their car? Would plasti dip work on wheels? Any advice helps.

    thanks

    flex seal is expensive, and works very well, but is not visually appealing. shit is as close to line-x in a can as you can get. i sprayed my sliders with it thinking it would be black, like its advertised, but it ended up being like an ugly fuckin grey color. so i sprayed bed liner over it. i wouldnt use it on your wheels if you want them to look good.
