Plasti dip is always a great idea, because if you don't like it then it comes right off!

Yea I have never really had any experience with it, still a good idea for rims though? Consider rocks and such that may kick up?

Plasti dip is very durable and many people have used it on their wheels... The bonus side is that it is extremely cheap and extremely easy to use.

It's great on rims. My friend had it on his 07 350z rims in 2007 and until 2009 he took it off so its sturdy and reliable

Sounds like a plan, I'm guessing scuff the rims then apply?

Re: Advice for painting stock rims

All you need to do is make sure the rims are nice and clean... Also make sure there is no armor all on the wheels cause it won't hold as well if there is... If you have never plasti dipped before i would look on youtube on dipyourcar.com's channel and watch some videos then practice on something other than the wheels before you dip them.
