Title pretty much sums it up. Sprayed my wheels, took about 2 hours total and 3 cans. Don't have any good pictures yet as my digital is out of battery and my phone doesn't do it justice. It seriously looks professional and the over spray peels right off with no problem. I highly recommend doing it for fun. All my friends thought I got new rims, pretty funny.

i sprayed mine as well. somthing in the spray makes it stick better to some surfaces and not to other. the overspray on the tires will literally peel right off. the spray on the rim will stick very well and can be peeled off if you grab a corner or rub it like you were rubbing the mark black soled shoes leave on a floor.

If you curb rash your rim, yes it's going to peel and your going to need to re spray the area that peeled. You can pressure wash it and take it through car washes. Stuff is amazing. You can spray pretty much everything. They make a clear that I'm going to do my lower valance with in the winter. You should have no issues with painting your reps. I mean for the cost who cares. Probably the best $20 mod I've ever done.

I can give you guys a little insight on this stuff. I have been using plasti-dip for 3 or 4 years. I used it to black out all my chrome accents because it looks good and figured it's easy to remove if you get any scratches or other damage. First time I had to respray was a few months after I sprayed it and it came off pretty easy. However last year I decided it was time for a touch up on my trim pieces. After baking in the sun for a few years this stuff doen't come off nearly as easily as the first time around. Definitely doesn't peel off in one piece anymore it's more like thousands of tiny pieces. and your fingers turn raw from trying to rub it off. I would go so far to say it's a pain in the ass to remove. So all in all this stuff looks good and holds up well just don't expect it to be the easiest removal after it's been on there a while.

A friend of mine used it on the chrome wheels on his new Dodge Ram. It looks good. It's held up, but his dog jumped on one and put a little mark in one of em, so he's going to have to re-spray.

Well after about a week and a half both my backs peeled off. BUUUUUUTTT I'm guessing because I was holding at 155+ for about 4-5 miles. I was going to my girlfriends house at 7:00am on Sunday which is about 8 miles away, well 8 miles takes about 3 minutes at that speed. Once I got there I backed in and noticed my left rear wheel wasn't black anymore, I then walked to the right side and same thing. Funny how the fronts had no issues though. Whatever, for $25 I dont care.
