Default White plastidip white stock wheels?

I've seen different posts from people who are either completely in love with using plastidip, or absolutely despise it. But one thing I see in common: Ranger wheels are almost always dipped black.

I plan on plastidipping the entire truck matte black, and debating if I want the wheels to match with black like everything else, or if it would look nice and unique with white wheels. But I'm also curious for those who have done white how they keep/stay clean, etc.

Anybody dip their wheels white and have photos?

Dark Shadow Gray:

Its nice, but I feel that gray color would be a little too boring. I'm already suffering from some curb rash and deep scuffs, so I'm hoping the dip will make it less noticable. With the crazy light show I'm in progress of creating, I feel like having my wheels white will show off the colors reflecting out of the wheel wells, but I'm unsure of how frequently they'll have to be cleaned, etc.

Well unless you add the glossifier, I don't think any color will reflect off of the white Plastidip since it dries flat.
