I'ts extremely easy, just time consuming. The only downside is having to reapply every few months if you daily drive it.

How many coats did you do? Also is this a Matte black finish, and can you take the finish off without damaging you original rim? Thanks

I did 4 coats of the matte black. Yes you are able to remove it very easily if you choose, makes a big difference in the look of the car for $20

Looks nice. Did you use glossifier? It looks more shiny than I normally see.

No clear coat or gloss might have been the way the lights hit it?

The easiest way to plastidip your rims is to leave the wheels on the
Car. Clean the rims real good to get all grease and grime off. Then get a garbage bag and place it behind the rim to cover the brake rotor and caliper. The use 3x5 index cards and start placing them
between the lip of the rim and the tire. "YOU'RE READY TO START SPRAYING"

I think your pictures just changed my mind. Now I just have to wait for a garage and/or warmer weather, or at least all the snow to melt.

The great thing with dip is that if you mess up you can peel it off and try again. It was my first time and I screwed up the first wheel but got the hang of it rather quickly. Trick is light coats so the paint don't run

They sell a gloss that you can apply after dipping the tires that still allows you to peel it off at a later date

It is called "Glossifier." You may have to special order it from some place like dipyourcar.com - I too saw it listed online on the Home Depot site and even verified on the site that it was in stock. When I got there i didnt see it on the shelf. They looked in their store computer and said that it was a non-stock item; it can only be ordered by the box. My advice: call before you drive there only to find out, like I did, that their website lies.
