...so I dipped my wheels...

Turned out great!

You could tell that my technique improved by the time I got to the last wheel though...next time I'll know what I'm doing a bit better!

Still love the look!

Looks good. I see you opted for taking the wheel off method. Just did mine a week and a half ago using the wheel on method. I think I'm addicted to Plastidip now.....lol

I wondered how the 17" stock wheels would look Plasti Dipped with SG paint. I'll be doing the same. Did you consider going with black lug nuts?

I'm thinking about doing the same thing. How has it held-up? Any trouble keeping it clean?

very nice

i did my buddies camaro's rims probably this time last year and they've held up great. a tear or two from getting too close with the pressure washer but thats about it. i also did the hash marks on my car as well as the chrome on the pony&tribar. the stuffs pretty dang tough if you do it right.

It's definitely worth it, you need zero expertise, just follow the videos. You will need 2 cans for all 4 wheels, and at $5 and change per can you cannot beat the price.

One trick that I just learned: when dry, Plastidip is a little tacky to the touch ... one reason it collects so much dust (brake and otherwise.) To make it less tacky, treat it with spray-on wax (absolutely must be SPRAY wax.). According to consumer testing, Maguire's Quick Wax is one of the best spray-ons. That will reduce the amount of dust and dirt it collects.

Sounds great, where did you get this info from? Just curious.
