    Yea, you got it.
    I painted them with Plasti-Dip white.
    Something in the rubber of the tire made it patina almost immediately.
    This just added to the look of oldness.

    Does the plastidip hold up to actual use? I wouldn't think so but maybe it's that good.

    Yes, Plastidip does adhere very well I guess as long as you don't skid your tires... :D

    Plastidip works great on rubber. I had a buddy use it on some car tires to make them look like white walls. They looked really good, but the sun yellowed them really fast.

    Here is my Mongoose Beast. Future plans are to cut holes in rims, replace tires and crankset. The lights are fun, though!
