use plastic dip. its like spray paint type plastic stuff. no prep work other than making sure the area is clean and if you change your mind it just peels right off! google it

Heat? I guess it does. Lots of people use it on their wheels. If your wheels get chipped or something happens to them you can just spray that area with plasti dip again and it'll cover it up.

It's dirt cheap and can be done in your driveway I don't think it would be too bad even if a guy had to do it twice a year.

Yeah your wheels can get hot from your brakes i mean they wont get extremely hot but they can get pretty warm especially if your pulling a load and have to stop a lot

Well I know that, but they won't get hot enough to hurt the coating. You should be good.

I plan on using that to redo my bumpers and honestly I may do the whole truck. It does just peel off kinda like a wrap.

when you say REDO your bumper, does that mean youve already Plasti dipped them? how does it hold up to bugs and rock chips from the highway? thanks. thinking about doing it myself to eliminate some chrome.
