    Looks but but to get a good tape line with plasti dip you need to use a razor to separate the tape at the edge. Also don't know how the caps will work out, it doesn't fill out the caps very easily. I encourage you to try it though, definitely unique and I'm sure it's possible with a little work.

    Looks good. Thought about something like this on my stockers. But I want to go with 16'' rims.

    I'm gunna say no.. but just because of the product. I don't know it, but I understand its kind of like a mask. I've heard it'll stand up to wheel speeds and chips... but Won't it bake on with brake heat. Why not just paint? Wheel sets are like 400 bucks, often with tires if you get sick of it. Don't quite get the affinity for the stuff on here. It's like waxoyl on british cars. Just a thing for that set.

    just went to the web site stands up to -30 degrees-200 degrees. easily comes off and several peeps on a vw web site has had it on his chrome for 8 mos no issues. and at 5.48 a can at home depot, sounds like a winner for me on a car i only drive on weekends...

    200 degrees is pushing it. Wrong angle but black pavement can hit that in the sun. then add some brake heat. But.. only pushing it.. not way out of bounds.

    What happens if it's heated though. WIll it peel or be unable to peel?

    I have a friend with a Miata that tracks his car and he has his wheels done with the Plastidip. His haven't had any problems and they look great. He uses his breaks like nobody's business and his are fine.

    PS: Why are we all worried about break heat when the rotors are so far from the actual wheels?

    You can't go wrong giving it a try. If you decide you don't like it you'll only be out a couple bucks and your time. It takes minutes to tear off and it be back to normal. Go for it!

    I did the plasti dip on my peeling chrome rims. just did one today but pretty nice. home depot 5.95 a can.
    1) peeled most of chrome off.
    2) sanded the wheel and smoothed out rough edges
    3) painted the wheel

    I like it... but I think two color rims look tacky. All black?

    The Wheels attach to the rotors. They work as a big heat sink. Next time you go for a longish drive feel your wheels and they should be hot.
    As for the dip it looks cool imo. I'd think you'ld have to rebalance them afterwards though.
