I like it. I was thinking of doing that just to protect the chrome from the salt all winter.

That looks very professionally done; amazing quality for only twenty-five bucks! I was thinking about using black Plasti-Dip on some old spoked motorcycle rims. You just cleaned with alcohol to prep; what kind of condition were your rims in before? And what kind of gloss did you use? Cuz' those look good!

Looks good, and the red calipers give a nice contrast.
