Default Plasti-dipped my rims

Just wanted to share my weekend project. Plast-dipped my stock rims on my 2008 Dodge Ram - turned out better than expected. 3 coats and 30 min between coats.

Hey flybeaux, I would love to learn how you did that!!! I have been wanting to do that to my wheels since I got my truck! Any information you can give me, materials, anything, I would love to know! I'm in deer park, and would maybe like to meet up sometime to take a look!

What's up Jwil? Thanks man, it's pretty easy. I got the Plasti-dip at Lowe's for like $6/can. Just tape off what you don't want painted and it goes on like spray paint. Wait at least 30 min between coats and apply 3-4 coats. I used cardboard cut outs inside the lug nut holes and where the center cap goes to keep the paint off it.

What did you do to prep the rims? Does the paint run easily? Your rims turned out awesome, i have some other wheels i'd like to try that on.

Thanks everyone. For prep I just washed and dried them. It's really pretty easy. The paint didn't run when I applied it, just made sure the rims were on a flat surface. I applied 3 coats w/30 min between each coat. My wife keeps saying I should offer the service for some nice side $$$$....
