    What are you talking about? Do you mean PlastiDip or powder coat? If you mean PlastiDip there is no way in hell I wold pay anyone to put a temporary rubberized coating on my wheel that comes in. a $7 aerosol can that you can get at Home Depot. Any normal 7 year old human being could do it and there are plenty of threads on how to do it, BUT if you mean powder coating your wheels than yeah you'll need a local member to help you out.

    Well Plasti-Dip is a rubberized coating solution and it was not originally made for wheels or anything automotive related. Many people including myself have used it with great results though, however I would only recommend using it for things like trim and bumpers, not a vehicles wheels. If you want a long term, permanent solution than either painting or powder coating your wheels will be more durable than any kind of rubber coating. Don't cheapen the look of your truck. If you are going to change them to black, do it the right way.
