I've seen it done with index cards too. much cheaper. When you guys plasti dip your wheels, do you worry about overspray on the inside part of the wheel?

I don't know about anyone else, but I did the whole wheel inside and out. I just taped of the part that contacts the rotor.

I guess is your goal is to protect the wheel you might as well. Do you think it would make it any more difficult to remove?
