Mask off brakes. Clean rims throughly with wheel cleaner. Then apply 3 to 4 thin coats of plasti dip. You can prolly apply a copy coats of clear afterwards.

Yea take your time and don't be "zealous" when you spray, the rims won't run away from you hahaha . I recommend spraying in a pattern or cadence like "psst psst... Psst psst and repeat lightly shading the rim. Don't pssssssssssssst shake psssssssssssst ya'know what I mean
