If you do it properly, it looks like any matte black or matte white wheel out there. It's kind of hard to make it look bad, really.

Plus it's ~$8/can, two cans can do four wheels

That's much cheaper than buying new wheels IMO

I would have bought some WRB paint from Grimmspeed for the hood scoop and side skirts. Not a huge fan of black wheels but you did a good job painting them.

Yeah well price varies locationally/on the internet. And yeah pretty much any imperfections smooth themselves out by the time it dries

My friend got a crashed STi dirt cheap, got new panels for it from various different cars and didn't have enough money to get it painted right away. It turned out pretty good considering he only spent $70 on it. Gonna do a final spray on it still but here's a pic I took of our cars

I actually had the idea and then looked through forums to see if anyone else did it then recommended it to him. and I actually think I recall looking through here, so yes you probably contributed to it

You could. Before it got big, some people would use clear coat on top of it to try and make it shiny

They also have glossifier, silver and gold metalizers and I am sure a few more treatments are in the works.

The clear plastidip is matte however.

I tried this and yes it works. Takes longer to dry but it will hold. I can post a pic of it if you want. Plasti dip is the shat! Works amazingly and can be removed easily if done right.

It looks great but I think matted spray paint is more durable.
