Question about dipped wheels

Hey all, sorry im sure your all sick of plasti dip questions but no other thread answers my question. I personally dont care much for dip but I would like to try it on the wheels of my truck. Would the dip come off of real chrome wheels easy? And my hubs get hot especially with 4 locked in, would the dip get fried to the wheels or anything like that?

Oh and of course, would it look good with black wheels?

Yes it will not harm the chrome, on the other hand if your chrome is oxidized and has sandpaper like qualities then it will fight you later on. Use light coats and build it up to 5ish coats, if you only put 2-3 coats it will take ages to get it off because it will just keep breaking when you try to peel it. Any way heat doesn't mater with plasti dip. I also used a hair dryer on hot with the lowest fan speed setting and it saves so much time. Instead of 10-15 between coats the hair dryer makes It like 2 minutes! Good luck

Should I use chrome polish or will that make it worse?

You can, but the plasti dip will need something to stick to. I'd just clean them up real good and paint them like what others had said. And I should know, I plasti dipped my whole 90' GT

No wax or Polish. When you run your fingers over the chrome right before paint it should be squeaky clean.
