Very durable, was happy to find out I can scrub these when needed even if it was by accident.
wow giggity!! thats the best dayumm news i ever heard of!!!
thats prolly the one thing i was worried about!!

Took em in the snow and mud and they've held up fantastically! I still have to take the spare off and do it too cuz I kinda forgot about it! Let's see your Jeep!!

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

This stuff is hard to find. I tried our local Ace and 2 different stores in SoCal and none had the spray can . . . .

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

order off of amazon, should be a little cheaper...

And I am surprised, I did this a while ago, and so far they have survived a 2300 mile road trip to Colorado and lots of snow and slush. Also daily driving from home to work on salt covered roads, and a drive to Milwaukee ( twice so far )

Great find on this product, definitely happy that I dont have to keep the reps on during winter.
