My roommate did this (I'm my freaking shower) to his Camero rims. They turned out well and didn't seem to crack or peel at all and he eventually bought more expensive black rims. As long as you do it right you should be set.

I did . i had plasti dipped my chrome cobras a few months back when i had em on my v6. it stayed looking really good for a while. i took em off cuz after being in texas heat for a while it looked like it just needed a fresh coat of plasti. i recommend it though it came out great when i had plasti dipped it.

They look nice! We're they flat flat black or did they have somewhat of a gloss to them?

Cool! Will the clear coat affect the durability or removal of the plastic dip?

I plasti dipped my chrome rims and they came out nice, although I didnt do enough coats (I did 1 1/2, you're supposed to do 4-5) so there's a bit of chrome that shines through but only if the sun shines on it. But a good bit of advice is so spray about 6 inches away. When I sprayed 12 inches away, they came out rough and looking gritty. But they came out better when I sprayed them 6 inches away. While you're spraying them, do your best to make them shiny and wet looking because when it dries, it keeps that shiny(ish) look to it. If you want them to look glossy, you can get some plasti dip glossifier, although I've never tried it before.

My friend used tire cleaner on his rims and they came out glossier than mine did.

I havent seen it in person but here's a link to it on their website.

Plasti Dip Enhancers | Dip Coating | Plasti Dip Interntional

They have a link on that website that tells you where you can buy it. But be sure to search for a store near you that says that they have it. Last time I needed plasti dip, I spent an hour going to 4 different stores trying to find it. I've never seen the glossifier in person, but I'm sure it can be found if you search online for the stores that do have it.

it wont affect the durability. and it makes it a little hard to remove the plasti if youre taking it off right away. if u leave it on ur wheels for a while im sure its not hard to remove it.

Good to know! I'm just a lil skeptical about doing it because I have 20" chip foose wheels
