Looks really sharp! How often do you guys find yourselves re-spraying wheels because its peeling off? Thinking of doing it but worried at how it may chip a lot

Never had to yet even after some burnouts and high speeds rocks just bounce right off the wheels not even the smallest chip. If you do order some dip I would order the repair kit too just in case. So you only have to respray that one small area. Watch the tutorial on YouTube it's real simple.

How many cans did it take for all four wheels, and how long is the dry time before they're road ready?

I know people that go 1-2 years. you don't really respray too much, you just touch up by spraying a certain area that is worn, and after 6-12 months you peel the whole thing and do it again if you want. But you can go up to 3 years.

It took me 1 can for every 2 rims. Light on the first and second coat. Then heavier coats on the next 4. Just be careful on the heavier coats because it will run easily. I just laid the rims flat to spray them. I did 6 coats. The more coats you put on the more durable it will be. Tape of the valve stem and mask the tires.

To be safe I'd buy 3 or 4 cans. Whatever is left over do your emblems or something or save it if you ever need a respray.

Plasti dip looks good in pictures, but IMO to much makes it look cheap. A couple of guys at work love the stuff but I'm not a fan..

Not knocking you guys, if your happy with it that's all that matters, and it is your car to do as you wish..

You must not have sprayed it right because it looks great. Nice smooth matte finish. Barely any texture. Maybe yours or whoevers that you saw held the can too far back, because that makes a very bumpy and pitted finish. Idk though used a Wagner sprayer when I did it.

I partially agree, i don't think the plasti-dip looks bad if its sprayed right. But i sprayed my wheels black and its smooth, but if you know what your looking at you can tell its plasti-dip and not powder coated

Yes, powder coat does look better, however for $22.50, and proper technique, they look great. Also you save $400 for something else. And if your not happy, just peel it off.
