OEM Nissan LEAF wheels painted satin black. Sort of gives the car a lowered look, but other than cosmetics, completely stock.

How has the wrap held up for the past 6 years? One of my concerns with this route is the wrap peeling over time. Can you just take it off or does it damage the paint underneath?

I'm interested as well. I saw one person who got a glossy black roof wrap (not on a Leaf) and after two years it looked horrible. Apparently he was told he needed to wax it weekly. Not sure if this is due to the brand of wrap used, a problem just with glossy finishes, or typical of vinyl.

Here's a picture with black satin wheels - Image



I saw these photos online when searching for exterior customization options. I have a red 2014 SL and was thinking of adding a black wrap to the roof/spoiler and the side view mirrors. Any thoughts on how that might look?

Has anyone had any experience wrapping the nissan logo in vinyl? I'd like it to be a flat black rather than the metallic blue that it is. It's kind of an odd shape and I'm not sure how easy it would be for a novice.

Maybe it's worth the cost of a small sheet of vinyl to try though?
