Chano, get the clear bra, don't live in paranoia and regret. You should buy proper tires, and I have plenty of plasti-dip for those wheels.

Not quite Tiffany blue or the shade I'm going for, but it does look AMAZING.

It has more to do with the fact that I think that my car deserves clear bra. However, the wheels I want are going to be closed out from Tirerack, so I need to get them soon. I might do: Wheels first, then clear bra, then tires.

And the light blue definitely isn't Tiffany blue. It's nicer than that.

107,500 miles and she got and oil and filter change, rear diff fluid changed and some new KYB struts with Swift Springs. Back to OEM ride height minus about 1.5". She rides all comfy now with a sporty feel. Not like the marshmallow OEM springs and struts.

I told him the same thing. That they looked "rusty" and he should plastic dip them.

I've been looking for the new BLAZE Blue Plasti-Dip for my winter wheels. Just something different (for up here). I can't find it at any local places though, and I don't want to mail-order it.

I thought about doing that color but I didn't really like the outcome in the video.

Maybe try AIH, or ask if they can order it.

Should've gotten the Clear bra done while it was in there already. IMHO.

I kick myself for not doing that on my current rig.

I'll be getting a better deal on it later. I don't have nearly $1k saved up. This only cost me $75.
