Don't sand! Just clean them really good. And spray a light coat to start then 3 or 4 heavy coats.
It's that simple. If you don't like it just rub them with your finger and it comes off

Clean them, don't sand. Do a light coat followed by 2-3 medium coats. The thicker you get the plastidip the easier it is to peel off if you want to remove it.

It doesn't peel easily... It's like pulling tape off a surface. Sounds like a latex glove being stretched as it comes off too.

Re: plasti dip my stock rims

Someone on here sprayed theirs and they look good. I'll do mine soon. You wash it like normal, it's pretty durable. I'd not use a pressure washer though.

I'd never have the balls to wash my car with a pressure washer... lol seeing that anything my dad busy is commercial grade... it'd destroy my car lol

did you remove the center pony from the wheel before painting or did you just cover it?

Re: plasti dip my stock rims

If you watch dipyourcar vids on youtube, you'll see that he leaves the stuff and just peels it off after it dries. The natural void between the center cap and the wheels will keep you from peeling off the stuff on the wheels. When he paints cars, he just covers the front and rear glass. He paints everything else, including the side windows, and peels off what he doesn't want covered. It's crazy stuff.
