Should I Plasti Dip these rims???

I am thinking about picking up these rims off Craigslist. They are 17" rims with TPMS and no curb rash. The rims clearly have a lot of oxidation and need some TLC. That said, do you think if I sand them down and clean them up a bit, they would look good plasti dipped?

I'm also from Chicago and worried about how plastidipped rims will endure a Chicago winter with all the snow/salt/chemicals.

I can get all 4 rims for $125. Think I should give it a shot??

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Clean em up and do it. You can search the posts where a few have posted about plasti-dipping as in how many layers, etc.
