    Is everyone completing 1 wheel at a time or pulling all 4 off at once? Not having 3 floor jacks to lift truck would make it a challenge to pull all 4 off at once for me.

    thanks

    Most folks use jack stands, not multiple floor jacks.

    How well does the plastidip hold up? At the car wash does it ever come off?

    This was actual paint, not plastidip. I've never plastidipped wheels, so I'm not sure.

    How did this end up holding up to the gas station car washes? Normal car washes? Did you end up with chips or nicks from normal everyday driving? How about off road? Did you end up having to repaint these again since your first application?
