plasti-dip

I always see people talking about plastidip. I got tempted to plastidip my stock wheels until i save up for the 19inch amr wheels. Can spmeone post pictures of their plastidipped wheels? And also, how much does plastidip cost and where can i buy it?

Used 3 1/2 cans for all four, but I also did the inside of the rim so you wouldn't see the silver if you got too close

Re: plasti-dip

Im happier for painting / dipping my wheels. Saves money that can be spent for better mods. The factory 19" performance rims look meaner in all satin black vs the gloss black/aluminum from the California Special!

I just did my wheels yesterday and I love it! It was so easy. Anyone who has any reserves about doing this ... do it! It looks amazing and completely changes the look of your car. Also, instead of getting new wheels, I'm gonna use that money to get more mods!

I had never heard the term plasti-dip before .. And I didn't know what the heck it was! Thanks for the clarification ....how long does this stay on? Does it wear off easily?

It's the same stuff they use to rubberize the handles of tools, like pliers and wrenches, so it's very durable. My buddy plasti-dipped his grille and after 2 years in the Arizona heat, it still looked like he had just painted it. Another plus is that if it starts to peel, fade, or tear, you can just peel that section off, almost like a vinyl wrap, and repaint it.
