I did my emblems and chrome grill surround on my current vehicle about 2 years ago and still looking good with no noticeable wear. It's a rubberized type costing so doesn't chip as easily as paint (in my experience)

I had it on wheels, grille, and trim for couple years and never had an issue. I think it holds up so well I dipped my whole WK.

Yeah i hear ya lucas, first tire rotation will just rip up the plasti dip. i want to eventually get black gorilla wheel locks but they are almost 80 bucks, wich is worth it but this is just a quick cheap easy solution for now...

On my wheels I wrapped some painters tape around the lug nuts and the center cap to keep them chrome and hopefully will avoid issues when getting the tires rotated
