Do you realize how rare it is getting to find a set of unmolested Style 21's [aka throwing stars] nowadays?

I strongly recommend against it. If you want black wheels on the quick, just remove the covers, but KEEP THEM WELL PROTECTED AND IN A SAFE PLACE. Style 21 spokes are black from the factory. Take a look at your spare for an example.
Good food, good people, good times.

Plasti dip is completely removable without any damage done. I say go for it,and you can still get Throwing Stars from the dealer. I had a chance to get them with my car but they po wanted $500 for them and they were in terrible shape. He left them in a barn and they had a bag of fertilizer leaked all over them. I guy on bf.c bought them.
