X2... Never heard of or seen that, and I live in SoCal.

I have seen flat black powder coating, but never plastidip. They do make it in a spray at Harbor Freight though...

From what I've just read, it's a cool temporary look but it's a lot of maintenance. From spraying lots of touch ups to cover places where it's gets scratched or torn, to it being tough to keep clean since dirt wants to stick to the rubber and doesn't just wipe off. Good part is that it just peels off when you're done with it.

a better but similar option would be one of the bed liners. Several offer multiple colors and for something as small as wheels a shop wouldnt charge too much.A tuff,long life coating!

Plastidipped my wheels about a week or week and half ago and theyre already peeling plus when you hit mud or dirt they stain easy its a cheap way to see if you would like to get black wheels before you commit tho!

I ended up doing it to my truck and it is still on there and still looks pretty good! One thing i did not take into consideration though is a painted over my wheel weights! So when i get my wheels rebalanced i will have to repaint the wheel! O well it does not take that long.
