Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

I have not. I would suspect other than the colour, there is no difference.

Ok so I plasti dipped my wheels yesterday since we had a break in the weather (super easy to do!!!) and I wanted to clear coat them, but they look sooooooo much better flat! I'm super serial. Here look!!



It's raining again here and so far so good. Going up to the mountains for some snowboarding tomorrow so well see how they hold. From what everyone else says I'm sure they'll be fine!

Yea I'm gonna lift her up in a year-ish (prolly like 6 months haha) Im installing my bilsteins HDs next week so technically shell be lifted. Haha but yea soon enough shell be taller!!

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

Heads up....I was at the coin op the other day washing the jeep and instinctively took the foaming brush to my plasti coated wheels and began to scrub all the dirt away. A moment passed and I realized that I had plasti coated my wheels. Power washed off all the suds and pulled the Jeep out of the wash bay. All 4 wheels still look brand spanking new. Very durable, was happy to find out I can scrub these when needed even if it was by accident.

Good to know! They held up to the power washing well? I guess I'll need to know this when I finally decide to wash my Jeep one day.
