Anyone used Plasti Dip on their wheels?

If so how does it look and hold up? I was thinking about ordering the charcoal grey but not sure it's a serious, inexpensive alternative. I really don't have the funds or good enough reason to otherwise swap out my stock 17" chrome rims.

The stuff is awesome. Only prep ya need is to make sure they are good and clean before ya spray. Light coats every 10-15 minutes will have them really nice and the more coats ya do the stronger it will be and when ya go to take it off it will come off in one piece rather than if it was thin it would keep tearing. To do your rims you could get them done with 2 cans but I would get 3 just in case. Look up some how to's on google. It will tell you how to touch it up if ya mess up and all that stuff.

Thanks, I looked it up on Google including you tubes but wasn't sure how it holds up off road on a real work truck. It would be pretty embarrasing to be tooling around out on the ranch and the skin peels off my pretty, blacked out wheels like a bad sunburn, exposing stock chrome underneath.

You will be fine. My buddy uses a power washer on his and has no issues. And if you have an edge you see peeling up. You take some acetone on your finger and rub the spot that's peeling back down so its smooth. Then put on a fresh coat over the area and your good to go. The only issues I have had with peeling is doing the rocker panels like in the pics below. When your peeling the tape off sometimes it gets stuck and pulls it up since the plasti dip isn't fully hardened yet but with rims I wouldn't even tape them off. The over spray on the tires will peel off really easy once it dries. Then you won't have any issues with it coming up with the tape. Here is some of the work I have done. I also did my oval red in my sig pic on the 2010
