Plasti dip rims?

I'm thinking about plasti-dipping my rims, but I'm not too sure as of yet. I have a few questions I'm hoping some of you can help answer.

What exactly is plasti dip and where would I be able to get ahold of it?

Would you recommend doing it to your rims? Are the outcomes pretty good looking?

Would it be alright to dip, chrome rims?

How do you go about dipping your rims, and finally does any one have pictures of their dipped rims?

Thank you for your time, Brett.

Heres my rims from my old 98, i use the card method... alot of people prefer just to over spray and peel off but id rather just not have to peel it. Put 3-4 coats letting them dry inbetween each spray. Also the plastic dip will give you a flat black look you can buy the glossifier witch you have to order online. This is a clear coat of plastic dip witch will give you a glossy look. What i did is buy a clear coat high heat gloss engine paint and layered that on top. You can also buy your plastic dip at home depot or lowes check out the photos

Well the glossifier you can only buy online well atleast in my area at dipyourcar.com but you gotta pay for the can and shipping and me being a broke college student someone told me to use high heat paint, and it worked for me also the card method is when you place cards inbetween the rim and tire so no spary gets on the tire(see the photo i posted of the unpainted wheel) this isnt neededa and many people say its a waste (probably is;p) because the spray will just a peel off the tire but me being a perfectionist i just wanted to keep it clean lol

I'm the same way, I'll probably go with the same method.
