Black OEM 18" steel wheels (plasti-dip)

I had been debating on doing this for months now. Finally pulled the trigger and the results are killer. This stuff is so easy to use, and the finish really comes out nice. Only thing I noticed was when your can is almost gone the aerosol comes out more than the paint and will leave it blotchy. All final coats were done with fresh cans. I did four coats on all 4 wheels and caps, and removed the wheels when I painted. Did not mask the tires, would of took way longer to do so then just peeling off the excess paint. Over all I love it and would do it again in a heartbeat. Any suggestions or commets are appreciated.

It's crazy the improvement that makes, especially on the steel wheels!

Great job

Looks good! Getting ready to do that myself this weekend. Did you sand your wheels at all before you sprayed them?

Thanks! I did not sand in case I wanted to remove it later. I did wipe the wheels down with thinner to insure I had a clean surface. I used 4 cans total at 8 bucks a can. So roughly 30 bucks total. Better than 800 dollar wheels, for now anyways.

One more thing, after each coat I had to wipe the nozzle because of paint build up.

What color is your truck?

Super White. Actually running black method racing wheels but keeping the steel's for when I tow and if I need to take the truck in for service. Love your color though and told the wife it might be time to trade in haha. I got the death glare.

Haha ya that stare is killer. The method wheels are actually the ones I want, but do to buying a house it's just not in the budget. Pyrite mica is a sick color, it looks brown, gold, olive green, and gray depending on the weather. I wanted white and was about to buy one, but they were not budging on the price. Got this one for a steal, had been on the lot for 3 months and was 5 grand cheaper than the other.

From a distance they kind of look like rockstars. Nicely done. The color combo is awesome to me. Im plasti-dipping all the chrome on my truck in about two weeks. Congrats on the marriage, and if your wife is as badass as the tundra, Youre set for life man Haha.

^^lol thanks bro. I have been debating how it would look with the bumpers done. But thought it would be overkill. Guess I could try and peel it off if I don't like it. Your truck is sick by the way. I can't wait to get my 3" and 35's...one day.
