Default Camo wrapped wheels

Alright folks, I finally have my first question for yall. I have made up my mind on the direction for my truck and its going to be a two tone style with my stock dark green and camo. Yes, camo. Well, camo wrap anyhow. My question for you guys is that I would like to actually camo wrap my rims as well. I saw a set that american racing sells but dog gone are they pricey. I would like to try and do this myself. My question is in two parts, the first is if this is even possible? What direction do i need to follow to find the vinyl or adhesive to apply to the wheels? I have not really looked in to anything or do any research but i figured that yall have prolly been doing this kinda stuff for a while and might have a quick answer. My second question is what rim to go with? I know this is a "to each his own" kinda thing but I have two styles I like and just can't decide which one. So, I am gonna leave this up to yall to poll for me. The two images below are the two rims that i like. Just let me know what yall think. Also, sorry I don't have pics of my truck that I can share with ya but I have not dusted off the ole digital camera in a while and I need to buy batteries for it. I plan on doing that, as well as a wash and wax, this weekend and will post some pics of my shiny pickup then. Thanks all!

I don't think they will look very good wrapped or last that long either.
You could try hydrodipping the wheels. That can get expensive if you have it done though and who knows how it turn out when you do it yourself.
I personally think you should just spend the $160 a wheel for some real tree vtec wheels, itll save you in the long run and maybe even the short after everything you put into doing it yourself

Well, ya win some and ya lose some. My goal was to keep the camo wrap uniform from the truck to the rims. Do you know if the camo wrap is offered in the same pattern as the real tree rims?
