    If you mess up or dont like it.. just peel it off. At the very least you will have some clean wheels!

    So I was thinking... if you don't like the available colors of plasti-dip could you just paint over it with regular paint the color of your choice? This way 1)no sanding, 2)if you don't like your work you should still be able to peel it off, 3)you could choose your color/sheen of your choice. Does anybody see any holes in this line of thinking?

    You can give it a shot but I don't know how well the paint will stick to the plasti-dip. Now you might be able to sand the plasti-dip so its rough. That would probably work better.

    in my experience paint does not stick to plasti-dip its too soft to adhere correctly
