Went home for the weekend to plastidip my wheels, black of course, and on the way got lucky with the wind. So when I normally drive I always seem to be getting pounded by the wind but that wasn't the case friday when I got 20.1 MPG on a 104 mile trip. The plastidip looks great I might add.. I liked the wheels so much I did the same to my front/rear bumpers and grill (previously chrome). It started raining before I could take a pic of those but I did get the wheels.

The wheels look great, nice job and ya have to love getting a little mpg help from mother nature lol, always seems like I'm either driving into the wind or it's a cross wind! :smileup:

Wheels look great and like Cajun I'm always fighting the wind and rarely running with it. There have been a couple of times where the tail wind has pushed me over the 20 mpg mark. Was neat to watch ECO kick in and the economy number go through the roof.

when i first started reading this i thought it was another "will this mod help my fuel mileage?" thread. Figured you were going to say plasti-dip helped your mileage. Looks good!
