    I wouldn't plastidip them, I'd either take the time to do them right (search around, there are threads devoted to it) or I'd pay someone to do it. I looked into it and it was around $120-150 to have all 4 painted.

    A lot of people on this site have painted their stock rims. I painted mine with Rustoleum about 13 months ago and they still look great...no chipping or anything.

    Mine was done last year, no problems so far. The guy that painted mine cleaned the wheels with steel wool & water, then three coats of self-etching primer, finally three coats of NAPA 7244 Toyota trim black. A pro quality gun was used. Make sure to sand it inside of the Toyota emblem on the caps.

    If you're going to plasti dip them wash them off with soap and water let it dry and then use index cards instead of tape. It will save you so much time compared to taping.

    Try powder coating, it will be like the stock paint.
