plasti dip rims

The only problems you'll have is with people complaining about it on these forums. Just make sure you clean off any dust or grease and do many light coats to avoid drips and you'll be ok

If you decide you want to remove it at some point, you'll appreciate more layers. Two or three layers comes off like cheap paint in small patches. Four or five coats will get you a thick enough coat that it sheets off consistently when you have to/want to remove. Also, you may want to get a can or two of glossifier. I skipped on that and really didn't like the result. I abandoned the effort entirely. Glossifier may have helped win me over.

The color will fade over time in the Atlanta sun. A buddy did his and was talking about redoing it after two years. Seems easy to do and easy to reverse but have not done it myself
