Ok here goes a small write up. I kept hearing Plasti Dip this and Plasti Dip that so I had checked out YouTube for some vids and write up's
First Clean the hell out of the wheels with a grease remover. The tape off the areas you dont want this stuff on. Don't worry if you get a small amount on anything you can peel it right off like tape.
When you first spray it on you will be like WTF did i just do to my rims. My wheels had there fair share of scratches and stuff. I would not recommend doing this to a 2011 set of wheels. Get them painted professionally if your 100% sure you want black wheels. But the nice part about this stuff if you can peel it off like sticky tape rubber if you don't like it.
All the work here is the prep ( no sanding but allot of cleaning and taping.
They look glossy until they dry. Don't panic that it looks uneven. If in fact they do dry uneven just apply another coat. But put on a through full coat so you don't get rough spots. I used 3 cans and that gave me 3-4 Thick FULL coats on all wheels minis the center caps, I have not decided if I will install them silver or do them Gloss black. Or just leave them off all together.
my windy work area ( I had a few small runs)
4 coats dry
when re installing let them dry for at least one hour at 60* in the sun. Then put a little WD-40 on the lug nut washer so you don't tear the fresh coating right off. The oil will prevent this. The first lug nut taught me this the hard way. The rest went right on with no tearing.
