Help: Stock Wheels in Black

Hey guys,

I'm thinking about painting my stock wheels matte black, and talked to a M3 owner in a random parking garage who used a rubberized spray to see how it looks on before committing to the paint. He said it stays on well, and is easy to remove. It actually looked really good, and I would've never guessed it wasn't done professionally.

Does anyone have any idea what he may have used? This was over a month ago when I saw this guy, and haven't seen him again since.

Yeah, another guy in the board talked about using that same stuff. Did it to his front grills and looked pretty good. Said he was going to try wheels next but I haven't seen him lately to know if he did or not.

Yep, it is plastic dip it will hold up for a while but it's always better to just have it power coated gloss black

Thanks for the tips guys. I am thinking of trying it first, seeing how I like the look on my own car, then deciding if I want to actually change my OEM wheels permanently.

I saw those 19'' Dinan M wheels for sale on the forum for like $3600, and I have my eyes on those. They're a little small though for this car.

I have done my front grills, sides, and rear emblem all in plasti-dip. They came out great and so I did the wheels next. It's been about six weeks and everything is holding up great so far.
