Yeah pretty much horrible experience with plasti-dip. That's why I need to know what kind of wheel paint I need to get to paint them. Or ill just wait and get some regular aftermarket rims.

Wait and get some aftermarket rims. If you screw up REAL paint, there's no going back! Hit up See Wheels on Your Vehicle - Discount Tire and try some on our car!!

you should try it one more time. I did my 99 mustang in the past and also my friends bmw 135i. Here is a great video if you're wanting to do it again. After looking at it, it should be childs play.

also if you want to make it gloss, get the plasti dip glossifier to spray over the matte black
