I'm gonna have to shoot it with my infared thermometer when I'm home from school. It all depends on the type of driving of course. I think when I checked the exhaust in front of the muffler on the cummins in was 232-234 degrees and I cant see wheels getting anywhere near that hot maybe 120-150 degrees
Plasti dip is basically a rubberized paint that you can dip, spray or brush on

It comes in a variety of applications, but I purchased it in an aerosol can. It's basically a rubberized compound that sprays on like paint, but when dry its got a rubbery feel to it. It's supposed to be pretty durable to weathering, chemicals, rock chips, etc. from what I've read, but you can easily peel it off if it starts to wear out, which is pretty cool. So when you're sick of it, just take it off and voila, all the chrome is still there, unharmed. It's extremely easy to apply as well, even if you get runs, they blend in as they dry. stuff is basically idiot proof.

I'll post pics next weekend when they're all done. I highly recommend it.
The best part about it is, money wise you're not investing much, maybe $25, depending on how much you paint. So if you hate it, or mess it up, no big deal.


Thanks everyone for the compliments!

That looks great. Did you have to do any prep other than clean before painting?

Nope, just make sure its completely dry before painting. I'm going to use mineral spirits on my wheels to take off any grease and such, but didn't deem it necessary for the badges and grill.
