Plasti dip stock wheels

Just finished up plasti dipping my wheels , I like the way it came out but it doesn't seem like it's going to hold up very long to be quite honest

Very nice. Just ordered a gloss black plastidip kit and plan on doing my factory 19s. The trick with plastidip is the more coats you put on, the better the longevity (within reason).

You might be surprised. I've seen people do this and have it hold up pretty well.

Either way it looks good and is easy to touch up if needed.

I'm going on 4 months and I haven't had to touch up any wheels. I think it's held up well. As stated, the more layers the better. I think I have 4 layers on each wheel.

I had this on my ZCPs and it lasted about 6 months after putting on 5 thin layers of it. Had random spots start peeling after washing, so avoid high pressure washes and you should be fine for a long time.

It'll hold up if you take care of them...

I Plasti-dipped mine recently as well...holding up fine and still looking great! Like the others have said, if you take care of it, it'll hold up fine. Just don't get any tire shine on them or accidentally spill gas on them (ask me how I know lol) or it'll come off real easy.
