Im thinking i might try plasti dipping my rims. Im not crazy about black. So i thought white would be interesting but due to the color of the car i dont think it would look good. I also have a problem with bad brake dust build up on the front rims. White would make it even worse.

It wont hurt to try the plastdip, but keeping the black on rims is a challenge to keep clean.. but I've never tried the glossy plastidip

Ryd slow photo shop some white wheels for him brotha! If u clean them once a week with dawn it won't.be and issue. U can also apply svrt to the plastidip and it will act as a barrier between the brake dust. If u have any questions on it pm me

Well I did a rim in white, was really bad. The nozzle was crap and didn't spray well at all. But it was was hard to get it off cause I didn't use a lot of it, still got done to get off... I would definitely use some metalizer over the white if I was gonna do it properly, and glossifier. I thought it made the rim look smaller in person.

How cold was it? In cold temps, the dip comes out of the nozzle poorly, in sort of lumps. On a nice day, the dip will come out just like spray paint

Hmm, I figured I got a bad one with my luck. It was light jacket temperature. Never thought about that. I didn't mind so much cause it was just a test, I would get DipYouCar's special nozzles when I actually do this plus the other cans.

I want to kinda livin up the look a little. Id love to do some flake in it to get a little sparkle. Very little so it keeps the white. I'll take it up properly to... But the plastic protection over the rims they use is flaking some like normal. I'd like to get the lead of the edge of the rim and get them to put the kind in the inside of the room.
