Plasti-Dip

I read about a guy who Plasti-Dipped is wheels. Mine are the alloy wheels and they are getting pretty bad. I clean them up but I can't get them really clean, some pitting and the grime gets in there and just won't come out. Just wondering how the Plasti-Dip would work in that application. Would like to do that if it works well. Anybody try that?

I've heard nothing but good things about painting (or dipping) your rims, check out these links:

I'd imagine it's essentially the same preparation and execution

Its cheap, easy to do, easily undone, and looks good. What do you have to loose?

After reading the posts on painting the rims, maybe I'll go that route. I feel that the plasti-dip would peel off. I live in the Adirondack Mts., in upstate N.Y. Lot of snow, salt, sand etc. My question is how it would turn out with aluminum rims? I know steel rims accept the paint well, but I don't know about aluminum. Any thoughts?

The aluminum should accept it just fine. If you're really worried about it, do a light sanding first just to generally rough them up a bit. Make sure to take your time with enough coats as well.

Go for it, if you don't like it you can just take it off. I've done it to a set of 15" steelies, and to a set of 16" stock wheels.
