Would have to see the pictures afterwards...

From what I've seen even with the glossifier the plastidip is still super matte, so it won't quite look like the photoshop.

Wont it fall apart near the lug nut holes when you tighten them down or the lip when you mount tires?

I did my 2010 Camaro rims with plasti dip lots and lots of light coats. If your reallllllll careful putting the rim back on the lugs are nearly impossible to see the marks it makes

x2 I would leave the 19's stock love the color of mine. I have a few friends who plasidip their wheels and it looks ok but nothing i would do on a BMW. I think a nice gloss black would look better on the AW.

yea i'm thinking twice about doing it to be honest. I just got my car back today from the body shop and I think I like the polished look with the chrome accents for now. If I do this I think I want to wait till I order black grilles and wrap the roof black.
