Dipping Pitted Rims

I was goin to dip my rims but wasn't sure if plasti would be ok over scratches and pits on the rim. Is it ok to just dip it right over them?

You should be fine. Just may need an extra coat or two for it to be smooth

Agreed, you might need to add a few more layers where they are jacked up. The reason I started dipping was the PO off my car loved kissing curbs. Lol

Looks pretty good! Can't decide what I'm gonna do about my polished lip. I'd like to keep it but that's the most pitted part ha. Thanks for the info guys 👍
