So you guys that have done your wheels, how have they held up?

Thinking of hitting up Home Depot and picking up a few cans for my winter wheels today. My winter wheels have been painted black but they have some chips and scuffs with silver showing through. I gave them a good cleaning last night, so they are ready for some plasti-dip.

If I only spray the rim face (since the rest of the rim is already black and isn't noticeable) would three cans be enough? Just looking to freshen them up before winter, will probably end up re-painting them properly after winter.

So I think the plastidip is starting to lift from my rear garnish already. There are a few spots on the edge that are lifting up. :(

May end up just colormatching it with the Ford silver paint I bought.

I have had mine on for 5-6 weeks now and they look great. I sprayed the whole wheel though, and put on like 5 coats as well. I used about 1 can per wheel.
