Plastidip is inexpensive and looks good. My frend has it also on his wheels for his accord for roughly 7 months now and it seems fine. It would only look bad if u purposely peel it off but other than that, its good cheaper than powder coating if ur tight on money

nothings wrong with plastidip, but powdercoatings lasts much longer in the end and looks better. plastidip is like a replacement til you save enuff to do a powdercoat. it also fades afterwhile in my opinion but it looks fine if you got no moneys lol

So does anyone have any pics of their wheels after they powdercoated them? I am looking in to this for my new EX. I like the rims and don't really feel like spending a fortune on new ones. This seems like a good alternative and it also keeps the original wheels with the car for the future. Please post any pics if there are any. Thanks in advance.

I want to do this but don't have extra wheels to put on while they are done,I will get black lug nuts also to go 100 percent black.I love the look but don't like all the hassle getting it done,I can't afford another set of rims but that would be the easy way to go,def gloss black!
