On the way home decided to stop at Home Depot and pick some Plastidip up. You spray it on and if you don't like the look of it you can rub it off/peel it off. I like the look of it and i might try a Color matched ring around the lip of the wheel to set it off a little bit.

Yup takes some pressure to do it so it won't "Just rub or peel off" I noticed after i sprayed them they looked a lot bigger. I need a drop bad its in the works though.

Ha hopefully brake dust doesn't show up on it. All 4 wheels havign brake dust was a common problem with them being silver.

I used 1 can on all 4 wheels it dried within about 5 minutes the last wheel i sprayed and instantly drove after spraying so it has a few wind runs but still doesn't look to bad. I bought 2 cans total and i believe they were about $3 a can at Home Depot.

My friends had it on his Civic for a couple months now and from what i've seen they haven't flaked/peeled off yet.

Thats what i thought about doing. Also Mineral Spirits on a Rag makes for removal very fast and easy that way you don't burn your finger from to much friction. (Oops)

That's kinda what I was thinking. Wheels get pretty hot under heavy braking. I'm curious if it would hold up

i haven't had to heavy brake at all in this car yet and hope i don't have to (knock on wood) But its holding up great on the wheels. I'll test this out on the pillars and and see how long they last to the elements and daily touching
