I plastidipped my stock winter sets last season. It held thru multiple car washes and salt/rocks...No chips at all after 4+ months

Old post but I'm thinking about doing this to my 189 wheels. Post a pick of how they look on the car please!

looks great, cheap alternative to painting and powder coating. I have powder coated many wheels for a few friends and that's the only sure way for longevity and toughness. great job.

I have since powder coated my rims and my buddy has taken the plasti dip off his rims, I will see if I can get any pictures from when he had the plasti dip on his rims on the car

Yup..i have them back on my car for the winter and its still holding up fine...It's no fun ripping off plastidip in little pieces so i made sure i had THICK coats. I think i used about one can per wheel. I sprayed so much it actually took almost a week to completely dry out
