It will depending on how bad it is. my wheels are are gunmetal silver plastidip right now and I do know that plastidip fills in curb marks perfectly! I have only curbed these one time and it was because some jackass wouldn't get over in a parking lot. I hit it with a bit more plastidip and matched the amount of metallic and you could never tell it was flawed lol

The metallic plastidip I have is almost just like the graphite color paint. So this is what it looks like when the wheels match the car. I have always thought it looked good this way but I'm thinking maybe the silver would make it pop and accent the car better instead of just blending in.

And that pic of the engine bay was actually when I simply cleaned it but didn't do anything else. This is what is looks like with the correct cleaning process with the engine bay sealant after I clean it:

I went and got my alignment done this morning. I just need to paint the wheels now. I may put in the rear camber bolts next weekend then have it aligned again though. Right now the rear camber is about 2.2 on each side. Its not horrible and it wont affect tire wear much but the bolts are only $20 and a hour of work.

I'm seriously debating removing the FSwerks header and flex, and putting the stock suspension back on it. I love the power the car has with all my mods, but its time to really buckle down and baby it.

I got new tires put on it yesterday(= I went with continental DWS even though it hardly snows here. The longitivity and superb ride quality of these tires was my motive and although they have only been on the car a day, I am amazed at how awesome they are.


I'm going to remove the plastidip from my wheels next weekend and paint them with duplicolor paint and clear so that it lasts and they stay nice looking. What color should I go with? I have a few cans of the duplicolor Graphite wheel paint which is like a gunmetal. But I thought about just doing a bright silver like a stock alloy wheel would be.

What do you guys think about all this?

Thanks,
Chase
I personally would keep all the performance stuff on, why bother with all the work? The wheels look great though, I been creeping on this thread for like four days now. If you want Itit to last, just do what I did sadly, quit getting smiles a gallon and focus on Miles a gallon ;)
