I'm also curious if there are any major downsides to painting/dipping your wheels.

I just did it 2 days ago with plasti dip. So not sure on how long it lasts, but they look awesome. As long as you take your time with prep, it will turn out nice. And be carefull not to coat it too this so it doesnt run. I put 3 coats on. As you can see i tried to tape off and leave a silver ring and it didnt turn out so well when I pulled the tape up. Im going to redo them later
