Actually did this to my explorer wheels a few days ago.



Really impressed with how it came out

Color me impressed. That's very nearly indistinguishable from paint.

Thanks guys! Trust me, I'm not a professional painter. The key to a good plasti dip finish is to hold the can CLOSE to the wheel, I've learned holding it too far away causes a rough finish.

I'm really impressed by the quality of the finish you can get with Plasti Dip's newer products. The metallics turn out surprisingly well. I was curious about anthracite when it first came out but I see lots of success stories like this one. Might have to do it to my winter wheels.

I'll agree with that. Working with Plastidip in that manner is a bit unnerving at first, since it's kind of the opposite of what you want to do with a regular spray paint. But the finish really does turn out better if you lay it on close and thick on the last few coats. I still start out with light dusting coats though.

Yes I would highly recommend their new colors at dipyourcar.com! Cost me less then $40 to do all four wheels.
