If I want a shinny finish to it then get the gloss, if you want it to be matte black then just get the black cans. If I were u if get 4 just incase better to have more dip than not having enough

If you are doing this for short term then dip them. But honestly I dipped mine and after two months they looked horrible. The brake dust loves to turn them grey ever after washing every week. Not worth it imo. You will have grey wheels!

I bought 4 cans when I did mine. I think used about 3.5 cans. The gloss I am not sure as I didnt use it, but I want to say the wheel kit on dip your car comes with 4 cans of dip and 3 cans of gloss. The look once they are done is great, but like someone else said it can begin to look crappy after a while. The cleaner from dip your car might be a good option, I on the other hand decided to go with new wheels as I wanted wider ones anyway.

Yes I totally agree with you!!!!! I was super excited when I saw some of the plastiDip that my friend does and let me tell you DONT DO IT! I have had friends do it to there wheels, tail lights, actual body of car......although it does look decent for a bit, DOES NOT LAST. I did it to my wheels on my Maxima and I regretted doing them one week later. Then, I had to sit my A$$ for hours to remove that off the wheels. ONE suggestion, if you do want them black.... just do it right and get them powdercoated.

IMO, plastidip is good for small projects on the car. I did my badges and hood vents a few months back and they still look the same as when I did them. Anything more than that, plastidip can start to look sloppy.

Yes I did the same thing... what I noticed is that when you use the spray cans vs a compressor, it looks totally different! If you can get your hands on that, do it that way!
