I have an 05 bug that I just plati-dipped the wheels. I have to say I am very impressed with how they turned out and I highly recommend plasti-dip. This is my first bug btw iv'e had it for 3 days now and love it such an awesome car.

I work with a guy that did his jeep wheels. He also goes for the off road mudding bit and they are holding up to that.

Looks good OP! I like the center cap contrast as well.

Plasti-dip comes in spray paint cans you just mask off the brakes and spray about 4 coats of it on the wheels and your good to go

i like them a lot. for more of a contrast, try peeling off the splines and really make them stand out.

How many cans did you use? Can you post more pictures? I have the same rims and I'm thinking about doing mines as well.
