Plasti dip hub caps

I'm thinking about doing it to my hub caps. Except I'm leaving the center of the hub cap alone so the Pontiac symbol still shows. Think it will look nice? My color is silver and I already have my taillights tinted and I have a black stripe on the side of my car. I'll try to post my hub cap.

Thanks. If they don't work I could always remove them too, that's the beauty of it.

I have the same hubcaps. I wanted to paint them too until my buddy pointed out the rims beneath looked pretty good too. So I painted those instead haha.
Now If I need to I can pop the hubcaps on and it looks stock, But I'll have to replace the stock lug nuts then too haha...

The copper looks good with the black. But I like the black with red stipe too. I'll have to remove my hubbies and check It out. Did you just paint in the redline?

The red stripe, and the later white stripe, are vinyl pin striping available at any auto parts store.

If you have the 5 spoke steelies I'd say check it out. Maybe seeing how it looks in person without the hub cap can help spark some ideas for painting them or something.
