Black Rims and Black Tints on my Sterling iA

Did a nice plasti-dip job on the stock rims and got some tints too! 35% on the front windows and 25% on everything in the back. It looks mean!

Not sure how I feel about black rims on black wheels but the tint looks great and dark enough to filter most of the sunlight.

The black wheels do throw me off as well, but the tints are real clean. But hey, to each their own !

Once your putting in work, thats the main thing

But as opposed to black rims on what color wheel? This is a pretty common style no?

Haha first thing I thought when I saw the pics was "can't wait for tints when I move to Virginia"

Good to see someone do a good job with black plasti dip on the rims for reference. Can't say I would do it myself but that's more because a black car with tints would be excessively black.

How to enjoy decaf:
1. Throw it in the trash

I've seen a guy on youtube plasti dip the chrome trim surrounding the "fish mouth" bumper, black. It actually makes it look better. just an idea since you've already plasti dip your wheels
