Plasti Dip Wheels on a any car
PlastiDip is a non-permanent, rubber-like spray that is popular among auto enthusiasts for customizing different components of their ride.
It's one of the easiest, cheapest, and safest ways to personalize your ride, and can be completed with little to no knowledge.
Clean your tires and rims to remove any dirt or debris
Soak the PlastiDip can in warm water. This helps ensure the fluids will flow smoothly while being applied.
Cover the brake and rotor with paper. In my case, I stuffed junk mail into the holes on the rim and folded the edges to cover the back of the rim.
Make sure all surfaces you desire to dip are visible, and that the brake/caliper are thoroughly covered. You don't want to have to clean this stuff out of a brake assembly.
Dip your first wheel
Shake the can well
Test the spray on a spare piece of paper to ensure everything is flowing well
Spray on the first coat. You'll want to put it on lightly; allow it to look smokey and incomplete. This will serve as a basis for the future layers. Spray in nice, even strokes, and make sure the nozzle is pressed all the way. You do not want the coat to go on as a splatter, or to be significantly thicker in one area over another. Make sure to get some on the edge of the tire, too. This will aide cleaning up in the future. Below is an example of a thin smokey coat; try to match this.
Wait 10-15 minutes. During this time, you can start prep work or spraying on the other wheels.
Spray on another thin layer. Don't put it on too thick.
Wait 10-15 minutes
Spray on a more generous layer. The rim should begin to resemble this. Be sure to spray on both sides; otherwise the inlets on the rims will be bare.
Continue for 4-5 layers of drying and spraying until the wheel looks well covered. The coat will appear more even once it dries, especially with matte coats.
Allow 2 hours to thoroughly dry
Pull out the papers behind the rims and inspect your work
Use your key or another somewhat sharp object to cut the plastidip layer between the tire and the rim. Peel off the dip that remains on the tire.
Use the sandpaper to tidy up any excess dip
Admire your work
Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done, then snap a photo for keepers.
