    Plasti Dip'ed your wheels?

    Hi all,

    Getting a little bored of my wheels so thinking of changing them to black. It seems everyone raves about Plasti Dip and it seems the easiest and cheapest way to do it.

    have you done it? Any tips? Any help? Good/bad feedback?

    I have a black Avant, so it will look very stealthy.

    thanks

    Jack

    Re: Plasti Dip'ed your wheels?

    If you're going to plasti dip your wheels make sure wheels are very very clean for it to stick.

    Any curbing or chipped paint will stand out with the dip, so thinking about sanding or filling if it's going go annoy to annoy you.

    As for cleaning, just normal wheel cleaning should be fine. Just don't use any thing to acidic or it will melt the dip.
