So I recently bought the gel overlays for the center caps of my wheels to match the overlays I have on the front and back of my 2013 FFH. You can see them on my stock 17" wheels here:
However, I wanted to make these pop. With a little research and a photo posted in the galleries by a fellow member on this forum, I decided that I'd rather plasti dip my wheels than get a brand new set of wheels that aren't designed for hybrid use. The pictures I saw initially had people using black dip and either leaving it matte or putting glossifier over top. That looked really good on some exterior colors, but I wanted a little different on my Bordeaux Reserve. I went for an Anthracite Grey Metallic with a gloss finish. See the comparison between the dipped rim and the unmodified version:
And the finished side view in a different light angle:
And finally some closeups:
I went for 4 coats of Anthracite Metallic dip and 3 coats of glossifier over that. It looks fantastic, adds virtually no weight to the wheels, and is completely removable and does not negatively affect the OEM wheels in any permanent way. So if at any point I get tired of it or want to change it, I just have to peel it off! I know this is easy to do because I screwed one wheel up and had to redo it. All four wheels took me maybe 3 hours to do, barring mistakes, tops. The question is how long will it hold up, but most people say they can get a couple years out of their dipped wheels. I ended up using 3 cans of Anthracite and about a can and a half of glossifier, all of which is bought from dipyourcar.com. They also have numerous instructional videos on their site if you're interested in doing it yourself, or just ask me and I'll share my experience!
