There was a reason I didn't take pictures of it up close. Didn't turn out as clean as I wanted. Something will happen though.. It's a good look
Def dip again. The day you posted you painted the pillars, every white car I saw that day had black pillars and it's a good look.
Not sure how handy you are with dip, but I've done it numerous times. The results heavily rely on the first coat which should always be a very light dusting. Just repainted my rims the other day.

Gage have you ever had an issue when you tighten the lug nuts after using plasti dip? I spent all day Saturday dipping my wheels off the Jeep. When I put then back on, everything was good until I started turning the lugnuts. A few of them grabbed right onto the tip and ripped it off the wheel. Just wondering. I did 5 coats plus glossifer.

no they did not. I took the wheels of the Jeep and then as soon as they were done I put them back on. The lug nuts grabbed onto the dip as soon as they tightened up against the wheel. it was so bad on one of them that I actually re did an entire wheel from scratch

Wheels look great mate!

I'm pretty handy but didn't have the right tools with me. I had a 4 inch carry knife with me and not something more controllable. Waiting on some stuff in the mail and will be doing a much more durable solution to the pillars.

Your lib has just the right amounts of mods clean yet definitely not stock

Dang I never had that happen.

I saw some other color dip at Lowes like bright blue and orange. I should dip my cragars and freak my wife out.

Glad you asked.
I have indeed had problems in the past. With experience I have found the solution. Use quarters to sit in the whole for the lugnuts when you dip the rims. Works like a charm. I've done about 8 sets of rims now that way with no issues. I know exactly the issue you're having and this should solve it.
EDIT: I did 5 coats as well.

Thank you very much! Definitely what I keep in mind with my Jeep. I used to strongly believe that every Jeep has at least one mod done to it if you look hard enough. I like to think I have that going on for me. If you look and poke around my Jeep long enough you'll figure out all my mods.

Hey gage, when your painting your rims do you mask off the side walls at all? When i paint mine with plasti dip too, I find it extremely annoying and difficult sometimes to get off the overspray on the side walls. Do you also?

Use index cards to insert between the wheel and tire. They are cheap and control the overspray.
