The best advice I got when it comes to plasti dip is do numerous LIGHT layers and just let it build up. I have about 5 coats on my rims and they are still doing pretty well. Also it helps to do it in the sun so it drys better.

I mean you can do that. I have found that it sets and dries faster when its warm and sunny. I have very little impatience when it comes to certain car related things haha

If you had drips and bubbles you were holding the can to close and didn't wait long enough between coats. Bubbles are also a good indication that you didn't clean the wheel well enough or had some cleaner on there still... Take them off the car and scrub with simple green then rinse with water and dry next time

It did it right from the beginning. That's what I thought the problem was but after cleaning it out for a good 15 mins it continued to happen. Do they have best before dates Maybe it was an old can. I'll try changing the nozzle and see if that works. Any other suggestions?

It's temperature. Says on the can to do it at 55 or above. I was at 53 and it came out clumpy and not like spray paint too. Did my buddies Acura CL s type 2 days later on our lift and inside the garage it was 56 with the heater. Came out like it should. I did mine in the sun and used glossifier. Also did my mirrors since they had some white at Walmart and also did my key with it.

Put the cans inside your house. Then go out, spray a coat and put them back inside. Or do what we did (highly dangerous) rotate the cans around the heater for 10 seconds and spray. If its not that then its the nozzle. Goo off or acetone will help that. Or a toothpick or something.

I didn't see any recommended temperature on the can, so I did mine at 40-45 degrees and mine came out good, I would say maybe you didn't shake the cans enough. One thing I noticed was when the can was. Getting empty it was a little lumpier, so I used the last bit of the can as a base coat on the other rim then used a new one to finish them off

Haha I wanted to get it done before I swapped out my winter tires so I didn't have to take them all off again. And since winter is coming to an end 40 degrees feels warm right now.
