    Plasti-Dip is normally used for insulating electrical tools. I have tried the colors. Works just like Black. I suppose there are different uses for that stuff, only limited by your imagination.

    As for using it for insulating electrical tools,..I don't like it. It nicks and cuts too easy. If my ass is on the line working on electrical equipment I am using some tough heavy duty Heat Shrink on my tools to prevent shock or electrical shorts.

    That is my 2 cents.:cool:

    Hey Everyone, I just bought an 07 Tacoma TRD Sport Double cab with 17" Alloy rims. I love the look of painted rims and was wondering the difference between plasti-dip and regular painting? Which lasts longer/more durable? Anyone tried them both? Any help would be great.
    Cheers

    Plasti dip is a rubberized paint. It is very durable but the good thing about it is it can be peeled off if you dont like it and you dont have to tape anything off. If the plasti dip gets damaged it can be easily fixed. Some people even paint them with the the wheels and tires still on the truck. Regular paint looks better but is permanent and will last longer. But it takes alot of prep and work to paint them

    Plasti-dip shouldn't be considered a permanent option. However, if you aren't sure you want your wheels to be black (or something else)... Plasti-dip first and if you like it, then consider Powdercoat or something.
