    I've have my rims front end and rear chrome pieces painted with plastidip for almost a year. It holds up great I got my first chip on a rim the other day. But that's fine cuz I think I'm gunna peel it off all 4 and re paint them. I don't really need to do this but It the only way to fix the lil chip. For the price you can't beat the stuff

    Wow that sounds like a way of preserving the wheels.
    I like the bumper mod.

    Update:

    I Plastidip'd two of my wheels, however, due to the style of wheel I have I decided it looked too much like a spare tire and peeled it off.

    I ended up deciding to just plastidip the center "hub" portion with the lug nut covers. Looks pretty cool. Pictures in the next post.

    *NOTE* if you are going to Plastidip make sure you keep it out of any sunlight at all until it is completely dry. This stuff drys fast, and it drys way too fast in the sun. If it is in the sun the product will not flatten out as it drys and you will end up with a fuzzy wheel.


    Picture of my style of wheel just for reference. If I had spoke wheels it would have looked fine, but like I said, with this style all blacked out I thought it looked like a spare.

    Yes it is a rattle can. It is also available in liquid. The guys at the shop where I got it said they have sold some liquid to guys who spray their whole car after thinning it.

    Plastidip is great!! Easy to use and remove, durable and looks great. I did my rims and after 8 months, there were no issues and I took it through the car wash several times. I have seen it used on everything from rims, hoods, bumpers, antennas, cupholders (new one from this thread) to an entire truck plastidipped.
    You can get it for like $6/can at Home depot and I think they have different colors black/white/red/blue and now clear coat and some other flavors. Pretty cool stuff! You can also use it on your tool handles for better grip...
