I enjoyed my plastidipped wheels for maybe a month at most. After that, the brake dust really started to show through, and I wasn't about to shell out $20 +$10 shipping for brake dust pro, since simple green didn't cut it. I had gold that turned brown.

I can only imagine black will turn dark gray. At least add some glossifier, should work similarly to a clear coat and be easier to clean and look better.
