    2008 CTS plasti dipped wheels

    Weekend project and first mod I have done since purchasing vehicle 2 weeks ago. What does everyone think? I'm still debating whether I like it or not.

    I think it looks beautiful! I wish I could do mine. But I found a literal hole in my rim. I don't know where it came from but it's like someone would have managed to stick a sharpened pencil into metal. It left that kind of hole that looks like the tip of a pencil. And my other rim has gashes on it. So I wouldn't think it would look nice if I did it.

    Plasti-dip will cover and fill those scratches.

    My wheels had been curbed by the previous owner, and after plasti dip you could not tell they had been at all. The product filled them in very nicely. I ended up with 5 coats on each wheel using 4 cans from Menards. Total of $20 and a couple hours of time. I ultimately decided I wasn't thrilled with how it looked and peeled it all off. But this upcoming weekend I will be doing the grille for sure and sticking with it.

    What about pulling the wheels off and not dipping the center caps and lugs? A nice contrasting caliper paint could make it all pop nicely. Def go with grill though, you won't be disappointed.

    Your car looks great. Dipped mine about a year and a half ago. they still look perfect. Removed them from the car. Did not do the center cap and nuts which makes them stand out even more, IMSO.

    Well I dipped my grille over the weekend. As you promised I am not disappointed. I love the way it looks. I also dipped the lower fascia on the rear bumper as well as wreath on trunk lid to match the front. Overall extremely happy with how it turned out. Hoping that the grille will hold up well due to all the abuse it takes from bugs and other misc. debris....especially during harvest season.
