    I'm too stingy to buy aftermarket wheels but I want to vomit :puke: when I look at my OEMs.Has anyone had any success in painting or Plasti Dip on their stock wheels? Pics of your wheels would be great.Thanks.

    I've plastidipped and bed lined wheels.

    Plasti holds up great. Bed liner holds up better. Both look good.

    I used a can of plasti per wheel, lots of light coats. Bed liner, 2 cans did all 4 wheels.

    If you're going to bedline, I've only ever had good luck with Rustoleum. None of the other brands out of a spray can ever really harden.

    Use index cards or playing cards around each wheel. Simpler, more accurate, and faster than masking off the tire. Spray some armor all on what's remaining of the tires if you're really concerned about overspray.

    Thanks for the info.I will most likely be doing Plastidip since it can be peeled off if I get tired of the look.

    IMHO gunmetal plasti dip would look good on that white truck.

    Linex is a great option but with the Plasti Dip I can just peel it off if I want to change colors or get sick of it.

    I asked about getting Line-X on my wheels before at a shop. They said they wouldn't do it there because the weight of it would make balancing difficult.
