Plasti Dip on my wheels

I was nervous to do this at first but it is extremely easy and turns out very nice!

Cans are like 6-7 each at Lowes/Walmart you'll need 3-4. You can do it yourself, a deck of cards around the edge and spray away it's very easy and whatever you mess up on can be peeled away.

Looks great OP! Did mine as well, plasti dip is very addicting though beware, I've now done my tail light bezels, interior trim around shifter, exhaust tips, and my side markers lol.

I concur it does. I think I'll use the playing cards idea next time. Peeling off the excess on the tires was kind of a pita, but worth it.

When it starts to dull after a few months, hit it with some armor all. It will look good as new again.

It was 5.96 a can at Home Depot, and it took 3 cans. I used some 3x5 index cards around the edge of the wheels a covered the brake and rotor with a kitchen garbage bag and tape. It was very easy, but make sure you spray in a well ventilated area or wear a mask. Just make sure you get every angle. Have fun and good luck!





Just make sure you clean your wheels very well and rinse them and dry them prior to applying the plasti dip.

Plasti-Dip Rules! Those rims look awesome. Nice work, like the card idea. Getting a second vehicle this week, one that gets 30 MPGs, white with body molding which is also white. So my husband wants to Plasti-dip the body molding flat black to breakup all the white. A Crosstrek Subabru, so its has a lot of black plastic/trim stuff and the Plasti-dip should match perfectly. Maybe I should do my rims on the ZL1, just seems like the Plasti-dip would/will help protect the finish. The paint is so thin on the ZL1 rims that in spots you can see it was under sprayed. Love the way you did the lug nuts as well. Looks great!

Oh, forgot to say the most important part. If I don't like the way the Plasti-dip body molding comes out, it's super easy to just peel it off and go right back to stock!

What did you use to prep your wheels prior to the plasti-dip?
