No spam here. I just could not help but say something about dipyourcar.com. I plastidip all my friends cars here at school right in the parking ramp. Figured I'd give a little input on the subject because no one has even mentioned all the other great stuff plasti dip has to offer.

Sorry if it seemed like spam. I just get excited about this kind of stuff, and tend to ramble.

I have a Lakeshore Slate Sedan with the stock 17 wheels. The paint is chipping on them and I've considered doing this same painting method. I found a similar DIY by a guy with a Focus. I also picked out that Dupli Color Graphite paint. It was suggested by the guys at the auto part store to put a few layers of clear on here. This will offer some scratch resistance to the color layers. I chickened out this summer but now a have a lead on some coupe 19's with tires for a really good deal. So maybe waiting was good. Anyways to the OP, thanks for the pics and I'm glad your results were good. When I get mine done I'll be putting up some pics.

So with your whole process, i can peel it all off whenever and it'll be back to original color right? even with the paint on top of the plasti dip?

What's the benefit of spraying plastidip instead of primer? So you can just peel off the new color if you don't like it?

Yep. The paint comes off with the plasti dip. Goes right back to stock.

Exactly. Primer would require you to sand it off, or just paint right over it. By using the plasti dip as a primer, you can just peel off the paint with the plasti dip since the paint sits on top of it. It's easier if you want to change colors.

My wheels are still holding up strong. They're now my winter wheels though. I upgraded :P.

I just bought an 06 g35x and the wheels have some pretty bad scrapes. I'm the "Do it yourself type of guy". Thanks for the idea, I'll try it out and send some pics when I do have the time.

so no gloss was added after the wheel paint? wouldnt gloss be better to use as well to keep the paint safe and shiny?

Nope, no gloss was added. I liked how they turned out after the two layers of paint. yeah, gloss would keep it shinier and add some protection, but this process takes no time at all, and these are now my winter wheels, so i'm not worried. Do whatever you think looks best. you'll be okay without the gloss though, protection wise.

looking good. Too bad plasti dip gets messed up after a couple months. I want a paint that stays on long, but also easy to take off. X]
