well a while back badvenge told me about how i could paint my wheels with plasti dip paint and if i didn't like it i could peal it right back off so i figured i would give it a try so went out and dropped 15 bucks for two cans of the stuff and masking tape and gave it a try

none lol this is a rubberized coating that comes in a spray can (black only). all i did was clean the wheels really well then spray this stuff on it two thick coats. stuff seems pretty tough and the best part is that you can peal it off the wheel when u dont like the look anymore with no damage to whats under it. also you can primer and paint of the stuff

I did my winter wheels in 05 and they still look good , If they start to fade you can just add a layer on top

Wow that dont look bad at all... Just did some Googleing on the product and seen several other cars and they all look pretty good..

One Question- How thick is it, will it hide minor rash or is it to thin for that?

Thanks

It hides rash well you can build layers , or sand down the damage and spray over it

it will hide some road rash all my alloy wheels had bits and chewed up areas from the last owner and 13 years of ohio winters and salt. i did two thicker layers of the stuff and it was able to hide pretty much everything but the bad damage on my right rear wheel

3-5 layers is ideal if you ever plan to peel it off.

And yes it will self level.

Most people who are decent at spray painting don't do thick coats to make sure they don't get runs.

I'm glad 2 thick coats worked for you.

yes i agree with you i don't do heavy coats of paint ever for that reason but this in my opinion sprays nothing like paint at all

How easy is it really to peel this stuff off? And what do you peel it with just a fingernail? I don't wanna scratch up my wheels removing it.

It's very easy to peel off, just rub a corner, or wherever with your finger tips, then grab and just pull.


There's a lot of videos showing people removing Plasti Dip, here's one.
