Yay or Nah? I'm torn on the rim idea.....
Thinking of doing this for real but wondering about opinions. Right now they Slips are gunmetal. Looking for a new look. I plan on plastidip them just in case I'm not happy

Yay, I love white wheels on a white car.

Have you considered polishing them, and then maybe clear coating them?
Rotas slips look great polished.

Got a pic of what they look like now?

I've thought about it. Might look better if they were 16". But I'm also worried if I do strip them. Can I strip them with the tires on? As far as clearing them I would have to spend way more than dipping them. Here is one currently gunmetal factory finish.

polish the lip

I can't stand polished lips on dark rims. It's been played out an is so 2005.

If I could do gold I could. Polished if I didn't have to fork out a lot. I don't want it to be permanent so plastidip is a perfect alternative.

Plastidip is your answer for sure. Don't like it peel it off. I personally think that too much white is a bad thing, but that's not what matters lol.

Yea. IDK....I'm torn. I think it would look less sporty with all white. Plus something new. And once that fades then I can peel it off. Or do a different color.
