    Dipped my Winter Wheels...

    Not for everyone but it does provide good winter protection and keeps the stock wheel in good shape from the salt and old man winter and can be easily removed, but best of all adds some colour to a boring spoke Winter wheel.
    Took about 6 cans and one can of gloss enhancer.

    6th coat of Blue and 1 coat of Gloss

    It's very close to the colour of calipers, It should turn a few heads in winter

    Intersted to see how it looks like with snow all around, not much of a blue wheel guy, but I think it turned out well.

    Nice work

    I'm amazed with how close it actually is to NB. I think it will look interesting against your FW. How did you paint the RS white?
