I tried it out on a spare wheel, the stuff bubbled up. But it was about 55deg. out and did no prep on the wheel. Does your grill have a texture to it, almost like line-x? I think I'm gonna try it again once i get heat in the garage. Probably gonna do the bumpers

I used the spray can, and so far its held up perfectly, i even drove down a gravel road and nothing came off. Im not sure about wheel, if all you do is drive around town and to and from work i think it will be good but if you doing heavy driving i think it will eventually start peeling but its super easy to touch up so if you dont mind touching it up every few months then id say go for it. if i were you i would go to youtube and search dipyourcar.com and they have their own channel an the guy makes great videos explaining every feature of plasti dip. its some amazing stuff ill tell you that. i highly recommend checking it out definitely

hell i did mine outside in 45 degree weather, its not the outside temp that matters as much as the spray cans temp, keep a bucket of hot water to put it in between coats and that will help alot. like i just told the guy before you check out the youtube channel.

but no i just had the standard chrome grill, only prep i did was clean the crap outta it. i washed it then used windex to get a nice smooth finish and then painted

I plasti dipped my wheels one day on a whim. My buddy was using it on his old muscle car and he sprayed it on my wheels as a joke. They weren't clean or anything, he sprayed all four when I was inside and I came out and they were black. It has been on there for about 6 months now and still looks great lol

Yea im planning on doing it too just too cold now, but yea its not like they are getting stuff flung at them, the worst thing would be curb checking but thats only if you rims even reach the curb unlike mine
