Should I?

Should I plastidipp my rims? I have staggered black fr500's. I'm only doing it to protected them. Not for the looks. They have been getting scratched very badly lately and it's annoying me. Opinions?

Why not? It would put a durable coating on then and keep em black. Plus if you ever want to sell them, or emd up not liking the look, the plasti dip peels right off.

If worked with plasti dip a lot. If you do prep work right everything will go good. But if not (like I did) the overspray is a pain to remove. I learned that turtle wax bug and tar remover works really good to remove overspray. It will create a nice smooth looking finish on your rims and it will protect them. I think it's your best bet

Thanks. I'll get a more posing position of it soon. It came out a whole lot better than my last car, practice definitely makes perfect.
