White LT Stock Wheels?

Has anyone painted/powder coated their stock LT wheels in white? Or at least have a pic or two of someone who did?

Idk. But you can get plasti dip and try it out. If you don't like it just peel it off

At least he's thinking outside the box. The typical black is played out imo.

My wheel on SS/TC are plasti dipped white. I did it back at the end of March, and they are still almost as white as the day I dipped them. The best product I found to clean is a chaeap degreaser from autozone called super clean (about $8 per gallon) and a cheap microfiber wheel cleaning brush from autozone ($4). I do how ever wash my cars about once a week. The degreaser pretty much eats right through the break dust and any other crap that gets on the wheels.

I had the same issue with platidip getting dirty and I tried a little glossifier and it made them a breeze to clean, you should try some of that glossifier, if you don't then you can peel it off.
