Cool. Did you use index cards around the rim or just spray it all and peel off on tire? Any hints you can give would be appreciated lol

Yeah i took index cards and placed them all around in between the tire and the rim. Then took a garbage bag cut it up the middle and wrapped it around the inside of the rim to cover the breaks. And make sure you do it when the breaks and rims are cool. You dont want to put a garbage bag around hot breaks or spray anything onto at high temps.

Awesome! Looks great! I love plasti dip. I used it on my spoiler, bowties, and tail light bezels. Its holding up really well so far too.

Yeah this stuff is pretty cool. I recently plasti dipped my bezels and "camaro" emblem on the sides and theyve been holding up really well too. I hope the rims do the same.

Be sure to remove the index cards inbetween coats while the Plastidip is still wet to avoid it sticking to the cards after multiple coats
