BaconZombie Looks good, but I promise those are going to be a biotch to keep clean. I hit mine with orange plastdip, and they're ridiculous to keep clean. The only thing that gets them kinda clean is a magic eraser.

I've also noticed that because of how I park at work (one side to the sun, one side to the building), I now have completely different shades of orange on each side of the car. Not a huge deal, as I'll just hit them with some more 'dip, but just struck me as odd that it faded that quickly.

OPsDad Hey, over the summer, you could coat those steelies white, too, and be stylin' year 'round!

KibaWolf I am missing like 2 coats on the back but tis doesnt look that bad, ill probably do these 2 additional coats on the back in a month cause im not putting those on my car before end of march (because we cant put summer tire here before 15 march, and its still very snowy and icey here, so alot of salt and rock on the road still, I dont want to damage my rims :P) so steelies stay for another month and a half.

OPsDad Nicely done. They look really good, can't wait to see the mounted photos!

KibaWolf there we go, first coat



Second Coat


Third coat


4th coat


All 4 done (sorry they are not on the car and wont be for the next month and a half because its still really cold, icey and snowy here.)



Ignore they overspray on the tire, i didnt removed it because the rims wasnt dry yet.

Well, there you go. Since I don't have a rack, I'd have it done, and so it appears it would be 2 or 3 hundred bucks. Maybe I'll just live with the status quo. The only think I don't like about these 18x8 wheels is the reduced turning radius which makes getting into my parking spot at home a pain because I have to back up, go forward and back again to make the turn. If it was easy to get them off of there, I'd actually see if removing them caused a rub and if so, if I could fix it some other way. 3 c-notes is a lot of money for an experiment!
