    JohnnyWayne, do you think the plast dip will hold up on those wheel? I've been skeptical of it on wheels and have been looking for a place to powder coat them for a reasonable price. Hope they last for you man. They look beautiful and so does the truck.

    I had Plasti Dipped my stock TRD wheels to check what black would look like on my truck. I was surprised at how well it held up for a few months. I ultimately ended up taking the plasti dip off and selling the wheels.

    Cleaning them became a PITA for me as I had lightly coated the inside of the wheel to hide the metal somewhat. Don't do that, or if you do, use plenty of coats as you would on the outside of the wheel. It's easy to remove if it is solid with good multiple coats but, thin...let's just say I made a mess with brake cleaner in the driveway. Never again.

    I just used some today... after welding up a couple gnarly grass spewing cracks in the neighbors lawn mower deck. I didn't have any rattle can paint other than blue, so the black Plasti-dip-derped it right dandy nice. WTH I say, as long as it keeps the rust away.

    So let me get this straight. I have silver fj trail team wheels. (sig pic) So i can plasti dip these then if i don't like it i can just peel it off and it will be good as new? If so how hard is it to peel it off rims?

    Thanks

    Back a couple of pages I think, someone said it can be a pain in the ass if your wheels have a lot of angles and edges, but they sprayed it with WD40 and then it came right off with a pressure washer.

    I officially got bit by the plasti dip bug yesterday. Today i'm running to the closest hardware store and buying some and hopping on the bandwagon. Wanna do my rear chrome bumper, but I'll probably start with the front hood emblem since it seems easy and I've never done it before.

    Sorry for the late reply but yep as others have said I think they'll be ok for a bit, I don't really go off road too much just yet and if they ever start to peel or flake it's pretty easy to hit em again. I was looking at powder coat places as well but to be honest with the stock rims the cost wasn't justifiable to me, the cost of the 2 cans was somewhere around 15 bucks :D

    I'll see how they hold up but right now I'm pretty optimistic; thanks for the compliments she's got a long way to go still :)

    I have never worked with plasti dip. Any idea on how I would keep the center trd logo on my wheels red? Just try and tape it off or paint then cut and peel?
