Gold wheels wouldn't be my first choice of colour, to each their own of course, but they have come out really well.

Cheers guys.

Didn't do the whole car as wasn't happy with gold. Looking for a bronze gold colour which I'll try next. I brought this from plastidip.co.uk but some colours can be obtained from amazon and eBay. Also dip my car ship to the UK.
Quality wise looks like it'll hold well so long as you've got enough coats applied. Usually say a can a wheel. Removing it very easy just score and peel.

If your happy with it mate go for it. Once you find the colour you like I’m sure you’d be able to get them powder coated the same.
The way you are doing it is reversible so a great way to experiment with colours and looks.

I did the wheels of my previous E82 with Plastidip (mirror caps, chromeline and area under the front fog lights). First it was easy to wash and to keep it clean. At the end, it was horrible: brake dust was in the Plastidip, it was quite abrasive. Colour was not great anymore, etc ...

Peal it off at the begining is quite easy, but at the end, it was almost impossible: it was going off only by very small pieces.

Tu sum up: good product but only during the first months of use.

Sorry for the delay. Here's an MG M140i with the gold wheels.

If anyone else wants any other colour 1/2 series, with any other color wheels, let me know :)

I quite like that with the white. I'd like to have had silver wheels.

I see there's a clear plasti dip spray - could it potentially be a way to keep wheels permanently protected?

Surely just clear lacquer?

Looking on reddit someone on there has already done gold wheels to the effect I'm wanting. Looks really good IMO.

Can anyone photoshop the gold wheels onto an Alpine White M140i? Would love to see what it looks like.
