Thinking of Plastidip-ing my wheels. Any ideas?

So I have a gold SE sedan with 17" "euro" style SVT wheels (the grey ones with 15 spokes) and I was thinking of plastidip-ing them black. I have blacked-out tails, side markers, emblems, windows are soon to be tinted. So, it's already pretty much just black and gold. I was wondering if it'd be "too much," or "just right." Any pics or opinions would be awesome! (speaking of pics, I can't for the life of me figure out how to post any, so use your imagination.

In order to post pictures you can use photobucket and then copy the link into the message box, I find this an easy way to do it, but as far as platidipping your wheels, I say go for it and try it out and if you don't like it just peel it off, I'm sure the black and gold will look good though

i'm currently re-dipping my wheels as i write this:) it's one of the easiest mods so far! if you do go with it as a test to see if you like it, make sure you do it the correct way! i only did a couple of coats and then fell in love with it. but while i was driving yesterday i think a rock chipped it and now it tore:( moral of the story is the fewer the coats, the more difficult it is to take off.[IMG][/IMG]
