So I have already blown my budget according to the boss and rims will have to wait. Should I leave them as is or plastidip them like the photo provided.

Car, Liquid Grey as you can see:





Wheel with silver lip and chrome center and lugs:

I would love a svt suspension or a mild 1.5-2 inch drop, but that will be next summer, the 28' pontoon boat is ready for the water!

dipped wheels would get lost next to the tires and the gray body. I would leave them silver

I'd use the effort to paint the mirror caps and the door handles. Although I don't think doing the wheels is a bad idea.

Not painting mirror caps or handles, my experience with 60 miles of driving a day, the caps would chip eventually and same goes for handles with all the little hands yanking on mine!!!

I am considering a silver lip and the rest of the wheel Liquid grey to match, hmmmm

Leave them as-is for now.
I have a similar situation, same color and wheels on my zx3.
I considered painting them, polishing them, everything....but they are still are what they are.
They will be run as they are until the tires need replacement, then new rims probably.

Well the plastidip is reversible, so I may experiment with it.

So many wheel choices though, drop will be before wheels......
