  • "New" Rims.

    Made them black with the product Plasti Dip. I have added more clear coat since I've taken this picture. I'm digging the new look.

      Thinking about doing that with our 2000 Durango. Started to polish them but decided it didn't need the extra attention and the wife says the black ok but add a red stripe near the edge of the rim. I will probably just use black paint to see if we like it or not. I have 3 sets of these wheels so experimenting with at least 2 wheels won't kill me lol

          Looks good. A bit of shine doesn't hurt them.

            I think painting/coating them black makes it more masculine.
            My personal description of the Liberty in general (not yours) is the "Chick Jeep".
            It actually looks pretty good with the black wheels, blacked out grill, and black paint.

              The exhaust, intake, and programmer make it much more masculine.
              It also looks great in green.

              This stuff is great to experiment with and is probably close to the cost of spray paint. $5 a can from the Home Depot. I believe I used a total of two cans.

              I hear ya. The Limited version of the Liberty doesn't look to bad with the chrome wheels and trim. Since it's black, I want it to have a more stealth look.

                If it's done well, there are very few things better than a blackout job. If it's not- it can really hurt the way a car looks. From the pictures at that distance, it's looking pretty good.

                Carefully balance how much you blackout though. Just right will make it subtle and gorgeous.

                  Looking good!!!

                  Nice thing about Plasti-dip...It peels off easily when you want to change it up or need to redo it.

                    Can you post a brand name or just ask for Plasti-dip? I guess Lowes has it too. I have a huge problem going into HD these days. I got a royal screwing on a kitchen remodel job that they wouldn't stand behind, so....

                      Plasti Dip is the brand name. I wouldn't be surprised if other stores have it. They also have a website.
