    Looks good, however what's the advantage of plasti-dip over regular black paint and clear coat?

    I feel like this plasti-dip stuff is becoming a fad. I can see the next thread. "I plasti-dipped my kid"

    Honestly, I kind of like them silver cause of the silver accents you have on your truck but if you are going to black more stuff out on the truck, then def keep the wheels black.;)

    So is the consensus that it peels off easier?

    Your truck and wheels look good as is, if you go with black wheels your truck would look better with no chrome accents. All chrome or all black.

    Oh, and it looks good. If you can do bumpers that'd look sick. I'd keep the toolbox the way it is just to give it some contrast.

    to make painting ur rims easy. just take note card and stick them in the rim lip,and go around. its easy imo

    Personally I like the wheels better machined silver. It just looks meaner. I think the black kinda cheapens the look of the truck but if you like it than that's all that matters.
