Plasti Dip rims (Help!)

So I am wanting to paint my stock 2005 V6 silver rims with black plastic dip. What is the best way to do this? Could I cover the tires with wrap and brakes, and then clean the rims with alcohol and then do a few coats? Just need help starting out, appreciate it. If y'all don't mind giving me a detailed plan.

If you have access to jack stands just take them all off and spray them on the floor. Will make it so much easier without having to cover your car or brakes with tape. You also don't need to cover the tires themselves, plasti dip won't stick to the rubber, so when its done it literally comes off of the tires with no effort.

This is how i did mine.... Of course you will want to cover the floor underneath the tires with newspaper or something.

That looks like it turned out very well! I only have one jack.. So any other way, would just be to over everything I guess. Appreciate the help. How many coats and cans did you use?

I left mine on the car and just covered the brakes with newspaper and covered the lug nuts with tape. The plastidip will peel right off the tire.

Very impressive, both of you. All you did was tape the brakes? Seems too simple

It really was simple. My 6 year-old helped me with covering the brakes and taping the lug nuts.

Make sure the first coat is light, to get the dip to stick better.

If you tape the lug nuts and valve stem, remove the tape immediately after each coat, so the dip won't get stuck to the tape and peel off.

I did 4 coats of black plastidip and 3 coats of glossifier (half a can). The glossifier really makes a difference in getting the wheels to shine and not be flat black.

I also did my hood scoop and rear deck panel with plastidip.

Very cool. I only have 2 cans, should that be enough? And for the decklid panel, I have a different paint but I'm assuming I should use a sand block on that and my stock spoiler as well. Just making that black as well with some risers for it.

I can't use tire shine because it seems to stick to the paint. Any advice? To all.

I use tire shine foam on the tires then wipe off any over spray I get on the rims with wet rag. U could always cut a template and hold it as you spray to cover up the rims. If u use the brush-on kind, just slow down and cut in carefully. go figure lol

I wouldn't trust just covering the brakes and rotors. My dumbass friend 'dipped his wheels on his 2011 Sierra and got overspray all on his paint around his wheel wells/fenders. Luckily that sh*t comes off with a little elbow grease and buff pad.

I took all four wheels off. Washed in and out and dried maybe 20 min. 10-15 min/wheel for masking then sprayed 2 fast coats on each wheel and peeled the tape. However by the forth wheel the dip had already started drying and taking the making off would peel the dip too so u had to score along the tape line with a thin razor. If anyone's planning to do this then either have a helper to peel the tape or do 2 at a time

I heard you should use at least 2-3 coats of plasti dip to protect from chips and stones
