That makes sense, I will give it try, I was definitely 10-12 inches away as the can recommends. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Plasti-dip is your friend

I could not stop myself from youtub-ing plasti dip shit last night, I am so ready to do this to my wheelz. Just got to find someone to hook me up with a deal on balancing them to get those ugly weights off the outside of the rim.

I would just plastidip right over the weights. When you change your tires, most likely the dip will never hold up anyways. Plastidip is not a permanent solution, but it will last a while. Thats what I did with mine. You can now only see the weights when your right up on them.

Re: Plasti-dip is your friend

Random But saw this on another forum

"Paint anything with plasti dip(as a kind of protective coat), let it dry then paint over the plasti dip with spray paint- spray paint has endless colors and finishes and it all can be peeled off with ease when you grow tired of the look-

Thoughts???...
