looks good!

I plastidipped mine too a few months ago and they still look good. Just be forwarned that a car wash tire shine deal when it gets on the wheels makes them look funny haha.

Dip is very strong and long lasting. We first used it in 2007 on my friends 350z and his wheels lasted until he peeled them off in 2010

I am new when it comes to plasti-dip. It seems like a good idea but I would want it if it is not permanent. How hard is it to remove when you want to?

Does anyone know how to do super fine straight stripes or edges using plasti dip? I tried it earlier with some regualr masking tape on a cardboard box and when I peeled the tape it made the edges all ugly and lines werent straight missing little bits of it along edge

As soon as you're done spraying the plasti-dip, pull the tape while it's still wet. That gives you the straight edge. Don't let it start to dry or else you'll get a rough edge

No waxing it makes it look funny. You literally just spray it clean. Can use soap too. Lotta people just do a pressure washer.

You used plastidip for your super snake stripes?
How does it look close up?
How big of a pain was it?

the only part you have to be sure of is that you line up everything correctly, unlike me, I eye balled it and messed up, but got pretty close. lol
here's a couple of pics that are pretty close to my plastidip work. hope this helped.

Just an opinion if you take the covers off and put chrome lugs it looks pretty sweet imo

Three hours is nothing!
I took longer then that making sure my running pony funder emblems were aligned and in the exact spot I wanted

So I guess striping would take me a week

What's Plasti dip?

I've never heard of it, I want black Matte wheels though and it looks like the Plasti Dip did it for you.

It's a plastic spray you can get at the hard wear store for like 5 bucks. You can also just peel it off if you mess it or end up not liking the look.

Thanks for the help @Red140.
How would you use it?
Take the wheel off, clean it up, spray it and let it sit?

Take it off the car

Wrap off anything you dont want sprayed (like the tire and the area around where you are spraying) with something like newspaper and tape.

Spray a few a coats (leaving some time in between (~15 min is what I have heard))
Let sit for like 24 hours. and go.

If you dont like it just find an edge and start slowing pulling it off.

NOTE: Make sure it is not cold when you do it or it can leave bubbles.
Go in a garage with a heater if needed, and especially make sure the bottle is like room temp

Thanks for the help. I'm gonna try to buy some today, and hopefully I get it the first try. I appreciate the help.

It's not necessary to tape off the wheel, but can make it easier, due to the gap between the edge of the rim and the tire it'll create a line, then you can just peel it off the tire. When you go to spray the rim, you want to make the first coat light (just like if you were doing an actual paint job) Also, make sure you hold it the same distance away throughout the whole application. the guys at dipyourcar.com show that if you change how close you are to what you are spraying it actually will change the texture of it. Also, for good clean lines (whether you're using masking tape on tires or the body or w/e) everyone says to pull the tape up while the last coat is still wet. if you wait till it dries you risk tearing it
