Got a black 2012 ex and was woundering if it would be dumb to wrap the hubcaps in black carbon fiber. Kinda a cheap way to get blacked out "rims". Just think it wouldnt look so OEM or well... Plastic. (new to the custom car thing, never had a nice car to care about before and just starting to get intrested in doing it.) is this a stupid idea. Do people do this? Or is it looked down on?

I worked for the Air Force in R&D using carbon fibre for space structures. Believe me; if you don't have a mold to force the (what will be the) exposed surface, then it will be uneven and pitted. Using low quality resin not designed for UV resistance will cause it to yellow. Better just save and buy some nice alloy wheels.
