I have heard so many mixed reviews about the dipping rims. Approximately how long do yall think they will last before it needs to be redone?

I've had my dip on my M-class in my sig below since I bought it in 2009 and still hasn't let me done. (Winter set up, summer I have some HRE's)

I did mine about a year ago. Held on strong for the 6 months I had it on (even pressure washed it). Decided to take it off and return to stock because I got bored if it.

I would say 1 can per wheel should do it.

I would say it honestly depends on the color... Since I went white I needed about 1.5 cans per wheel...

Hey guys, I was wondering if one of you could give me an update as to how the plasti-dip is holding up. Any problems with it peeling off? Can you wash and clean them safely? Thanks
