Wanna put on some cool treads?

So my 04 Special came with the 18'' Special Wheels, but when I bought the car they were chipped, scratched, rashed, you name it.

I eventually swapped them out for some 2012 Chrysler 300S wheels, but I decided to use them for my snow tires this season.
Rather than leave them looking drab, I decided to plasti-dip them.
I am obviously a fan of plasti-dip what with my 2002 Intrepid being completely liquid wrapped.

Aluminium plasti-dip will refresh a set of Special wheels and make them look OEM, but I wanted to keep things interesting when doing it:

The wheels are done in Deep Sea Blue Pearl, one of dipyourcar.com's aerosol dip pearls.
I am a big, big fan of the color.

The color really stands out. I have been debating on dipping the wheels for my winter beater to give it a bit of personality

Very interesting. And here I am just negotiating a set of used winter wheels and tires... Though mine will be year round... And also all terrain...

Wow! Those look really good. Considering the phenomenal job you did on your Intrepid though, I'm not surprised. Good job Ryan.

turned out nice. i used a set of 1st gens for my winter rims with a simple gloss black.
if i ever do them again i'd give the same thing as you a try.

They look really good in person!

I will be dipping the cladding of the black car this color in the spring if I still own it.

Ryan. you mentioned you used aerosol. how many cans and what did you clean the wheels with so It would stick well? I was thinking of doing this for my winters with a different color. they look great!

For prep I used dipyourcar.com's pre-dip spray. Stuff works great.
I scrubbed the wheels, gave them a light scuff and sanding with a scotchbrite pad, then wet them down with pre-dip and wiped down with a super clean microfiber.

Then I used 4 cans of black plasti dip as the base so that it would peel well whenever I need to do that. Then 3 cans of the aerosol dip-pearl color.

This is the first time I've used aerosol plasti-dip cans in coolish weather.
I heated them up in a pan of semi-hot water first at the recommendation of my the plasti-dip groups on Facebook and the plasti-dip came out very, very smooth.
I think I will plan to heat them up from now on, even in the warmer months.

Thanks!
