I am starting this for 2 reasons. 1: I am going to get my black TRD wheels one way or another. 2: If anyone has used this and has some pointers let me have'em. I have been doing some research and it looks to very simple and provides awesome results. It is a cheap and easy way for me to get black wheels and I can change them back if I choose to later. Win-Win in my eyes.

You probably have already seen the write-ups on the other side (Blue Room). If not, there is alot of posts there. I have a second set of wheels I would like to sell, stock alooy wheels 07, in the mean time I have considered keeping them & plastic dipping them also. I just can't afford another set of tires right now.

I have been reading the blue room and watching many videos on youtube so I am schooled up now.

It really is as easy as it seems. You don't even have to mask the tire, just spray everything! The excess Plasti-dip on the tire will peel right off.

IMHO plasti-dip will not last on a wheel. Plasti-dip is great to see what something would look like black. But if you really want it to last peel it off and spray the wheel with:

1. Self Etching Primer
2. Base Coat
3. Clear Coat

THAT ONLY WORKS ON 4-RUNNER STUFF.

I agree....first time a pressure washer hits it I think it will be toast.

I know that totald is longing for the black wheels. I would say flat black rattle can w/o the primer that way he would easily remove it later with alc. as well as touch up.
