I would think so. I plastidipped the chrome bumpers on my Frontier pickup and bought 4 cans expecting to use 2 on each...but even after 3-4 coats of the stuff, I didn't even go through one can for both.

You going to use glossifier on them? That might help with the cleaning of the brake dust of there is a glossy surface. I think with just the regular plastidip, it might be a real pain in the ass the clean because of the texture. I painted the stock wheels white, I love the look.

You gotta go heavy with the plastidip. If you go light coats, its a nightmare to remove. The more coats, the easier it is to remove. I learned that the hard way when I first did my wheels black. If you want a reference to see what white wheels will look like on your car, take a look at mine. It did the face white, and the inside of the wheels black with plastidip. Gives it a nice look

BTW, I did a full can per wheel when I did mine, and even then it was a p.i.t.a to remove. But I had the plastidip on for an entire year before I removed it, so maybe that's why it was so tough to remove
