Plastidipping Trailhawk Rims?

Has anyone plastidipped the silver portions of their trailhawk stock rims black? Iíve done the full wheels for my previous vehicle and it turned out alright, but I wanted to see if anyone had photos like this. I think the matte/gloss contrast could be cool.

Went with the Selenite Gray plastidip color for the silver portions. Matches the grill inserts really well. Taping off was pretty tricky, but happy with how it turned out overall.

Looks good! How well does it match the paint of the Jeep? I want to do mine black with a silver lip; they're not trailhawk rims though.
