Stock AV6-6 wheels, in white!

Decided to spice things up a little bit and plastidipped my Stock 6-speed wheels white. My thinking was to keep in tradition with the Type-R cars and have the Champion White wheels. I also was thinking of white O.Z. 18in wheels in the future and i wanted to see how white looked on the car.



Thoughts an opinions?

Oooh, I like that contrast between the NHB and white! Looks very clean. If it'll make you happy, do it man.

I did the same to mine. I love the look and the white is fitting on these wheels. Good job.

Dude let me take a wild guess, your 6-6 is a 2005?

I wanted to get some Volk racing wheels in white, but their like $800 bucks!! That can be better spent in some performance mods instead :/. Did you have to primer the wheels prior to doing this? What about dismounting the tire off the wheel?

A lot of folks paint their wheels w/o dismounting the tires - just tape it off really well (many folded over newspapers tucked in b/t the tire & wheel). But who knows, if you miss, it'd sure be unique riding around with white tires!

I would definitely suggest a good sand w/ a heavier grit to rough up the original coating, then wet sanding with multiple grits heaviest to finest, at least 2 coats primer, 3 coats base and 3 coats clear. Remember, wheels are introduced to ALL sorts of weather, debris, etc. You want them to stay looking sharp after all that hard work!

G'luck!

2004, i did not primer the wheels because plastidip is not paint. I left the tire on the wheel and put note cars all around the bead so i didnt over spray. I used 1:1 Purple power on the wheels and scrubbed them down. Rinsed off, let them dry.

Plastidip is not paint so i did not sand or primer the wheels.

Nice! I may try mine white just to see on san marino red
DO NOT prep the wheel in any way people, like he said its not paint. The whole purpose of PD is so that you can peel it off and be back to the original finish.

All this work, just to be ruined by a high pressure car wash. White did look good, though.
