Need input on wheel mod......

Gonna Plastidip my wheels on the big girl... I've done the trim, I've done the wheels and rockers on my Jeep. I've gone mudding, I've power washed.. this stuff is the real deal, so we don't have to discuss it's strength or longevity.

Just want your opinions on what I'm gonna do. The choices are just black out the middle, or go all in and do the whole thing. Or choice #3. Leave it as is.

I used to have to get my plastidip across the border, so I was using it as sparingly as I could for touch ups, and such, but now this stuff is available at Home Hardware in Canada so I am happy. Let me know your thoughts...

Middle....


Blacked out...


Chrome- as is ....

I'd say chrome or just the blacked out centre.....all black is too much on a set of wheels IMO, you need something to break it up a little.

I'm leaning towards the middle too. Never thought about leaving the center cap. Good idea. Looks kinda musclecar-ish I think.

Chrome center cap and chrome lugs should complete that picture nicely I think.

X2 or maybe it's 3 for both!

Lol

Leave only the lip on the rims..
And black the bumpers. Maybe some euro circles on the headlights. Lol


Maybe do a portion on the hood.
Or even the top half of the truck.
