Just plastidiped my 17s that were originally painted a dark charcoal color. I went with the new true metallics color aluminum that's advertised on dipyourcar.com. I masked my wheels off and went to town. I was pleasantly surprised how well it applied. I eventually stopped around 8 coats each. Turned out better than I anticipated. My only concern now is longevity and keeping them clean. The photos make them look darker than they actually are.






Nice! That looks great! I see you taped off your valve stem. I debated doing so but I decided against it. I think the white valve stems that I now have are "one off".

Honestly though I had no idea they have so many colors. It makes me wonder if there is a color swatch of all the available finishes. My local vendor only had 3 colors. Luckily white is one they stock. I have been wanting to do my rims in white for a few years now. Eventually I will powder coat them but this is a GREAT temporary fix.

So now all we need to do is figure out WTH is in this brake dust cleaner solution. Like a previous poster stated it is more then likely some already in use chemical that has been relabeled for marketing value. I want to say I read that the cleaner has a HEAVY sulfur odor. Or some really bad smell. If we could figure out what it really is we could RULE THE WORLD!..

Cool stuff. Cheap, easy and actually kind of fun. And GREAT results, so far.

Oh come on now, don't be that way... You came in and crapped on the OP's idea.

This would seem more appropriate...
