|Tedbo68||Ok cool, the only one I would have to do is my spare since my bike rack uses the center hole of the rim, Unless I say screw it and leave it silver. Decisions Decisions haha|
|06-04-2013 12:32 PM|
|joeg679||I left the center cap in too|
|06-04-2013 12:28 PM|
I dipped with my wheels off.
I used quarters on tape in the lug nut holes.
I left my center cap on....I can't see myself taking it off anytime soon. That was 5 or 6 months ago.

|Tedbo68||I just ordered the stuff today and can't wait to get this done. I am thinking about getting the wheels rebalanced prior to dipping them and having the weights put only on the inside. Also, do you guys think I should take the center cap out and spray it separately or leave it in. I am worried about if I have to remove the center cap, the plasti dip peeling from the rest of the rim.|

I actually dipped the lug nuts too--I liked the way they look all black. If you do like that look and need to change the tire, you can easily turn the lug and then re-spray the lug when you get a new tire.

|mattdaddy71||For those dipping with the tires still on the Jeep.. What do you cover the lug nuts with? Just tape them off?|

|joeg679||I left the weights on. I asked a bunch of people and they told me that the plasti dip wouldn't affect the balance...and it hasn't. I actually just re-dipped the rims this weekend because the edges were bothering me. I took my time and made sure that I sprayed a light coating all around the inner edge where the wheel meets the tire then I sprayed a light coating over the whole face. I did about 8-10 light coats and they turned out much better and smoother than the first time I dipped them. I sprayed the inside of the rim too bc I didn't like the way it looked being silver.|

|mattdaddy71||I think I will be plasti-dipping my Sahara rims this weekend! First time I have ever seen them blacked out, and to me they look awesome! Thanks for posting this OP!!|

|Tedbo68||Did any of you guys take the wheel weights off the outside of the rim before plasti-dipping them or just left them in place?|

|Goldrif||So, do you plasti dip just the outside(front facing)? or the inside part of the wheel too? (using only 3 cans?)|

Looks great, I have the same wheels on my 2013 that I dipped black. They turned out really nice, but I am having trouble around the lip of the wheel where it meets the tire. I sprayed and oversprayed onto the tire then let dry and it peeled off nicely, but some spots on the lip pulled up. Did you have this problem? I bought the liquid dip and a small artist paintbrush and was going to touch up the spots, but the dip would stick to those spots like the spray does.

|BOJIs TJ||Just plasti dipped and installed '13 JK Sahara wheels on my '03 TJ Sahara.|
|04-27-2013 11:23 PM|
|krawdaddy||I think I used 3 cans for all 5 wheels. One wasn't even finished but the cap clogged up and blew off|
|04-26-2013 10:58 PM|
Nice look. A little spray goes a long way...
|04-26-2013 09:31 PM|
Finally finished mine. Here's a shot comparing dipped to non-dipped:
And both dipped

|army vet||Got the drivers side done. It really changes the look.|
|04-21-2013 04:32 PM|
Thanks for the post, I just bought the same vehicle and did plasti on all,of the interior silver pieces, they look great....my next step was to try thw wheels but now I see them in black, I may have them powder coated, also had the dealer reverse the tires, not a fan of the raised white letters.
Also took the silver bumper covers off, much better look.

|army vet||Here's a better view of the spare.|
|04-21-2013 10:52 AM|
Here is another "spare" view....
The wheel is kinda dirty....but..you know...

|TOK||I wasn't crazy about the new Sahara wheels when I first saw them, but they look really good in black. army vet, I'd like to see how they look w/the Commando green when you do the rest!|
