Plasti-Dipped, Powdercoated or Rhino Lined Stock 17" rims? Bumpers?

Hey y'all how's it going?


Well I get my truck back from it's bulletproofing job tomorrow and I'm already thinking about making my truck more bad ***! I got an 8" Mitre Cut MBRP Stack system lined up for $250 already. Along with finally getting it custom tuned!


I was wondering if anyone has Plasti-Dipped or Powdercoated or Rhino Lined their stock rims and bumper? I'm talking about the rims I have now, the lariat 17" I think they are? Yes of course I want aftermarket rims but after the heads job and stuff I can't afford that right now. But I can afford $25 or $30 worth of Plasti-Dip!


I think they would look good flat black and if I remember right I do remember seeing someone having them powdercoated and they looked good!


Anyone have any pics or have done it themselves?



Thanks!

alright first time playing with photobucket so we'll see if it cooperates but this is mine, i've been pondering pulling the plasti dip off the wheels and sanding them and actually painting them.

Looks good! I'm just trying to get rid of all of the chrome on my truck. IMO Dark Color vehicles should be blacked out!

I've had to go through and polish a log truck for a yearly log show, so it would drive me insane to have chrome all the time that wasn't mirror polished, between Active Duty, school and my wife, I don't have time to be polishing all the time

Good point! How's it wash up? Do you worry about it peeling off when your washing your wheels or does it stick pretty well?

it seems to be sticking on my wheels just fine, I don't get detailed with the brush at the car wash but I do hit them with the brush and its holding up, the only spot that they've come up a bit is where the strap went through the wheel when I had it towed when my trans blew up
