Plasti dipping wheels?

i am thinking of plasti dipping my stock 17 inch wheels but i am curious how many cans i would need of it, and how long that it stays on, i live in wyoming and i drive in snow and de icer and sand all the time will it withstand these elements or will it crack and fall off? also will it hurt the TPMS or can i just spray over that and it will be fine? any help would be greatly appreciated.

if youre gonna do your wheels do it right and paint them. im a plasti-dip lover but ya gotta know its limits. they may look good when you do them but after weeks/months theyll start to chip and peel then itll look like crap. my advice is to just paint them. good luck whatever you decide

Your going to get a mix of good and bad with this.

Personally I wouldn't plastidip wheels, but I pressure wash my wheels and keep them pretty clean. Plastidip wouldn't hold up to my pressure washer or the wheel brush I use.

I was able to do my grill, A/C control surround, badges, and shifter console surround, cup holders, as well as a few touch ups on the shifter console (maybe 4-5 coats extra), while doing about 3-5 coats on everything else with one can.

I'd buy 2 or 3 just to make sure you have enough, but I'd guess two cans will do the trick. My grill and badges have stood up fairly well to the elements and washing with a high pressure hose, the shifter surround and cup holders wore down pretty quick from constantly being rubbed/touched, everything else still looks the way it did when I first painted 'em.
