Goof Off liquid works very well. It takes it off easily.

I need to do this to my wheels :D I was thinking of powder coating but here in Mexico there is no place where I can do that, two question:
1.- How you clean this up? Just kike normal with soap and water or any special cares for this? (I dont wanna spend 50 bucks just for 1 week painted rims lol, I know it last forever but maybe a year or so would be cool)

2.- What is the best place online to find the plasti dip?, I looked in Amazon and the can is about 8.95 plus a shipping of 15 for 4 cans, I checked dipyourcar.com and seems to be the best place 7 bucks per can and a shipping of 8.65 of shipping, any experiences with this page?
:D

^ I get mine from Lowes for around $8. Make sure you get the spray, not the dip kind.

Well no matter what you do, your wheels will always be dirty; you can't prevent that.... But the Goof Off does take the plasti dip off completely if that's what you meant originally.

I spray very lightly, and wipe pretty hard with the wet sponge. Its actually a sponge inside a micro-fiber finger cover with mesh on the other side. I have 3, pretty cheap at walmart!
