Yes, plasti dip as a base is a great way to check out different color for wheels. It peels off just like it was normal plasti dip

Obviously you've never seen a Fiesta in person, they look nothing like a Sonic.

Thank you, but I think I might change it to a metallic sparkling silver.

And yes, I saw a few people saying they had a problem, but it must just be that they did not put the plastic dip on thick enough, and it went through the dip.

I tested on a spare rim I had laying around, and it peeled off fine.

the only thing is my right front one got messed up, because the plastic dip didn't like grabbing the deep corners on that rim, must of had dirt on it.




And here is a pic of them on the wagon, sun makes fender look mad faded, but it's just the way the sun is hitting it.

My camera isn't too great in certain light. Kodak easy share C713.

You still might be able to get it from a local retail store, look here to see if you have any of these in your area to save yourself the hassle of waiting for your plastidip in the mail:
