Plasti Dip Stock Wheels!

I did not like my stock chrome rims and could not afford new ones at the time, so I decided to paint them... That's when i discovered Plasti Dip, the best paint product in the world!

I'm sure ya'll have heard of it, but if you haven't... it is a rubbery spray paint that is very durable and chip proof, but can peel right off if need be.

I could only find the black color at Lowes for about $6 a can, but they have a website with more colors.

All I did was clean my rims with soapy water, think up a design, then paint away! I put on at least 8 light-medium coats on each wheel, and used about 3 cans in all. $20 is much cheaper than powder coating at $50 a rim.



I also went ahead and painted the plastic mirrors and door handles, because they were fading. It really spruced the truck up. I've had it all painted since may, and so far the Plasti Dip has held up perfectly!

This is my final product! And a before and after shot, what do you guys think?

No he didn't scuff it first you don't have to plasti dip makes a rubbery covering over whatever you apply it to and is completely removable if you no longer want it. Dipyourcar.com go there and watch the videos it's pretty neat stuff.
