Paint Rims black with Bedliner or Plasticdrip. Should I?

Hey all, im wanting to paint my rims black instead of spending some more money to buy black rims. In my opinion by the pictures on the internet they look pretty good with bedlinder or plasticdrip spray. Should i paint them with one of those 2 materials? Has anyone done that before? And if so have any pictures? Also my jeep is 1998 sahara Forest Green or dark green(whatever you want to call it). Does black rims look good on this color of a jeep? Thanks

The one thing about Plast Dip is that you can just peel if off if you don't like it. I haven't done it, but here's a thread from a guy who has:

Did my wheels with plasti-dip. Turned out great. I've had my 240sx wheels plasti-dipped for over a year. Holds up well.

Send a message via AIM to Irongrave
plasti-dip holds up very well and you can remove it later

+1 for plastidip, especially if you plan on selling the wheels after getting something new,
