Spray-on vinyl wrap for wheels next big tuning trend?

Foliatec Spray Film 09.04.2012

German vinyl car wrap specialist, Foliatec, has developed a new spray-on film that allows car enthusiasts to change the color of their wheels without paying for an expensive paint job.

Foliatec says two cans (400ml each) of their Spray Film will give all four of your wheels a new color. The DIY product involves removing the wheel, masking the tire, spraying the film and mounting the wheel - and you're done.

The Spray Film puts down a tough rubber-like layer that protects the surface underneath. Once the film is on, Foliatec states the film will not be removed by a car wash and detergents do not affect it.

If you get tired of the color and want to try something else, the Spray Film easily peels off in little time. But the Spray Film is not just for wheels. It can be applied to other parts such as side mirrors and bumpers.

With a price of €49.95 in Germany, Foliatec's Spray Film is available in a wide spectrum of colors including black-mat, green-silkmat and
charcoal-metallic to name a few. Foliatec will demonstrate on April 28 the possibilities of Spray Film at Tuning World Bodensee 2012 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

This looks cool! What I think puts this apart from other products is that it can be peeled off. Most of the time, people just spray and re-spray every time that the was to switch the color. I really like the idea of changing the rim color on my car . I'll have to look into getting some of this stuff.

With all due respect, it makes the rims look cheap and will earn you no extra points at autoshow events. Where this might work well, would be racing cars that want to blend in the rims with the paint scheme.

It makes me glad that Iam over 50 years old can truthfully tell you, that Hell will freeze over and the Devil himself will be giving ice skating lessons, before I would ever ever put that on my SL63.

Kids have been doing this way before Folio tech, just by spraying Plasti-Dip on their wheels.

I was going to say the same thing. It is called plasti-dip and is like 6 bucks a can. There are tons of youtube videos of it and even entire cars done up that way. When you get sick of it, it just peels off as long as you used a couple of coats.

Yeah, i used it on my "winter rims" and it looked very nice. I had a silver Passat with black plasti dip wheels. But here in germany, plasti dip isnt that cheap :/

Wait until someone sprays too much on one side and then complains about their wheel being out of balance - otherwise, an interesting idea.
