Yep, did that. That's a great trick. I had to park up the street because my street is really narrow- so I had to get each wheel off, roll it down the street to my house, scrub it, roll back up the street, and spray....whew

Looks great! Plasti dip is a spray on that can be peeled right off of any surface.

If it just peels off wouldn't it break loose when washed

That's the beauty of it, you can pressure wash it and it won't come off but peel from the edge and it comes right off!

To answer some of the questions- yes it colors the rims. It's very much like just painting them except for 2 crucial differences
1. It's easier to apply than spray paint, and gives a very nice matte black finish
2. If you decide you hate it or really manage to screw it up- or want your factory wheels back, you can peel it off.

From the folks I've talked to, and the research I've done, it lasts pretty well. People are going through car washes and having no problem- not to mention it's easy enough to touch it up.

I wasn't sure I'd like the black, so I wanted to see what it would look like, and I'm planning on buying rims in February, so I wanted to be able to peel it off and sell my stock wheels.

Perfect solution for me.

Its like any other form of paint in the sense of dont go blasting it up close with a pressure washer or it can destroy it.

Right, from what I've read and seen you can wash it with a pressure washer the same as you normally would, on low pressure and not right up next to it. I plan on doing some mock up stripes and rims with it in a few months when the weather here permits

I thought about doing it that way but I wanted to give the rims a good scrub down- this was just easier and cleaner for someone like me.

Do they sell other colors other than black at Home Depot? I was thinking of having my wheels done, but never thought to do it myself! Did you take the tires off or did you do it with them on?

I imagine they sell different colors as they do at my local Walmart. My Walmart has matte silver, black, red, and green.
