FYI Plasti Dip Guys!

So i plasti dipped my stock wheels a few weeks ago to get me by tell i get new wheels and tires.. Yesterday i was putting some armor all tire shine (the goopy kind that comes in a bottle, not the spray stuff) on my tires and accidentally got some of it on my plasti dipped wheel. I noticed it made it look much more black and shiny (as you probably know the black plasti dip can look somewhat greyish) so i ended up putting the tire shine on my whole wheel and i think it looks much better! Just somethin to think about if you have plasti dipped wheels

Here is some before and after pics..

They do look better . I'm going to have to find out about this plast-dip stuff as I want Black rims. Will it cover Chrome & not scratch off real easy ?

Yes it covers any color up very well. Just make sure you do like 5 coats and wait like 5-10 min between coats. And yes holds very well. It shouldnt come off until you take it off. And make sure you clean whatever your plasti dipping VERY well before you spray it especially wheels!

Not too surprising. The PlastiDip is a rubber-like product so it'll take a sheen like a tire would. The question is how long it will last and since it has alcohol in it, if it will dry out the plastidip and cause it to crack/chip.

I keep debating whether to try Plati-Dip or to Powder Coat or maybe just try to Trade my Wheels for Something in Black I like. Problem is I can't even find any info on the wheels I got as I bought them on C.L. I've never seen them on another car anywhere.
They say PRIME on the Center Caps but that's it. Prime website doesn't show them.
Maybe discontinued ???

Dip needs multiple thin coats to be as smooth as possible. It also eventually looks like **** as brake dust accumulates on it. It is not easy to clean either, as it's original purpose in life is to be a non-slip tool handle cover.

When you get tired of it and want it off, it's reasonably easy to get most of it off by pulling. The rest just melt it off with wax and grease remover.

If you use the glossifier it will make cleaning much easier.

I bought some stuff called break dust pro (or bdp) from dipyourcar.com and it works extremely well. Its a true TOUCHLESS cleaner. Just spray it on generously, wait 2 min. then rinse off with a hose.

These are just my two cents..... But coverall by Stoner is the absolute best dressing I've found for plastidip. Makes your tires and dipped wheels shine the same. Looks very good and it's a thin aerosol spray. However DO NOT use black magic tire wet. You will find your self re dipping your wheels. This is mainly why I use Coverall. I know it won't hurt the plastidip and it's not thick and nasty looking on the tires. But like I said it's just my $0.02.

You guys should look at getting plasti-dips glossifier. Makes it look semi glossy (if done right). I did it to mine. Makes them really easy to clean the brake dust too.

Here's a sample of 4 coats black and 1 coat of glossifier. Glossifier was sprayed from about 6 -8 inches from the wheel.

I will post some close-ups when I get off of work in a couple of hours. I realized the photo is kinda far away and you can't get the full effect of the glossifier.

I painted my hood vents black like a month ago. Is it too late to put a glossifier coat on them and have that effect?

Nope. It makes it look freshly painted 24/7. Just clean it up before you do it.

What do you guys use to cover the tire perfectly and spray just the rim?

A pack of index cards. Just stick them in the groove between the rim and tire & spray away.

I tried that on my stock rims. For the most part it worked ok, but it still left a silver band where the rim meets the tire.

Here is what I do. Take wheel off the car. Prep the wheel, and spray it. I do no masking what-so-ever. The plasti-dip will not stick to the tire for more 2 days usually.

I sprayed mine on Wednesday night, drove it to work the next morning (about 10 hours later). When I came back to my car after work ( 18 hours from finishing th wheels) I was able to just peel the over spray on the tire right off, since it was just hanging there.

I've done this on 8 wheels now. If you screw, up leave it for a hour, then peel it off and start over.

Here's what I'm thinking. I have a white 2014 5.0 and I have already plasti-dipped my hood vents flat black and the 5.0 badge flat black. I LOVE the look of the black vents and badge against the white paint. But after seeing that glossy finish with the glossifier applied I'm thinking about pulling the vents off and hitting them and the badge with a coat or two of the glossifier. I'm thinking about doing the same to the stock 19" five stars. And I havent seen it done before but I'm also considering doing it to the stock spoiler. I think it would look badass but I'd like some opinions before I attempt it. Anyone seen the stock rear spoiler plasti-dipped glossy black on a white 5.0? Or does anyone have any pictures of it? I just don't want my brand new $30,000 car with less than 1,000 miles on it looking like dog **** when it already looks badass right from the factory.

I did my time with plasti dip on those wheels and grew to hate the stuff. I have actual aftermarket wheels now, and I'm damn sure not spraying those lol

As for the spoiler, I'd just get the RTR spoiler. It's already painted black and would look a lot better. It's a toss up for me between that one and the Gt500 style prepainted black.

The whole car sounds about right but the rims are a little expensive. There's a place in west palm that charges $100 for all 4 rims any color. But everything else sounds right.

I was thinking the same thing. How can four wheels be almost the price of the whole car? I'm going to look around more.
