Hey guys,

Just got my X yesterday and put on custom 22s, but I decided to keep the stock 20s and plastidip them for road trips. The easiest way to do it was to get some index cards and fan them out in between the rim and the tire. It took me 2 cans of plasti dip for the 4 wheels. Came out looking very nice and was pretty simple to do. I used wd40 to get the extra spray off of the inside. I recommend taping off the holes from the backside when spraying them. I also bought wheel covers that are used usually on the back of Jeeps for the spare wheel and sealed up the 20s until i'm ready for a road trip. Here are the before and afters of the stocks!

PS: If you need an awesome OA.. my guy got me a great deal and I got the car in a week! I was very impressed with him and we continue to talk this day as he owns an X too. He's always looking at mods and stuff just like us. You can DM me for more info. I LOVE MY X!

Whoa! That looks cool! Just did my wheels and all trim and badges with black plasti dip. It turned out amazing. Great product, then I got it lowered because why not? Pardon the mud, my driveway needs to be repaved, also pardon the white stuff on trim, have to fix that today. Excess wax/sealant. Zack.
