The cheapest way of blacking out those wheels is Plastidip from what i have seen on here. Search around on here since some have done it so far and it is easily to remove if you later want it back to stock.

I did my winter tires in them and they became a nightmare to clean as they are kind of sticky and the dust settles in them. If you`re looking for something permanent, I would wait and buy rims, but if you`re looking for something temporary than Plastidip should work for a while.

Welcome to SG!

I don't personally like the blacked tinted lights. It makes them useless, and looks funny IMO. I think that red color would look sick with some crystal clean headlights with the inside bezel painted black....some blacked-out clear corners, and some nice suspension to slam that thing. The Kaminari kit will be sick too. I've always liked that red color when modded nicely.

some people dont like it, the reason i did it was that the car was bought from a dealer in texas, so the lights were foggy and when i buffed them, they are covered in hairline cracks. but with the tint, i buffed it and clearcoated it, so i have visibility at night. once i get some money i will but new lights for front and back. and a good buffing a pearl clearcoat maybe?
