LED's inside, HID kits for low beams and fogs. 285 75 r16's.


edit: Stan, what's the best way to mask off the tires- do you tape all the way around? or smear them with something non-sticky? I know you've done this...

Ah man, the blacked out wheels and the blacked out sides look fantastic, Martin. Then again, I am partial to that look…

TIM! You should do it that way! It would Rock!

I took my wheels off and did one at time so I could prep better. I bought a package of 1/2 sized index cards from Walgreens and slid them in between the tire and the wheel edge to form a lip and sprayed 3 or 4 very light coats.

For the caps, I wiped Vaseline on the sombrero and sprayed a few light coats. The Vaseline lets you just wipe the plastidip off without peeling the whole thing. I'm pretty tech......

before and after...I didn't like it at first, but now it's grown on me. I have to respray after every trip because of rock scrapes though. It doesn't hold up well. That's a PITA.

Honestly, I liked the Oem better. I vote peel it off. That before pic in the driveway looks awesome.

OEM or black. The white is too white. I don't like the black all the way down either. Too "high school". Sorry Travis....

Default our vote...

Griff and I vote for blacked out from trim down including wheels. I think I'm going to PC the OEM rims I have, If you go that route, let's drop 'em off together.

I think you'll waste your money. Having to retouch them all the time will make the PC look like crap. Plastidip is cheap and easy and almost looks the same. My wheels are destroyed from rock rash.

If you want it done permanently, and done correctly… You need to have them Ceracoated (the stuff they paint guns with) it takes a couple coats and they'll need to be "baked" in a Ceracoat dryer for 24 hours, but it's some seriously tough stuff.
