Default Do These Look Plasti-Dipped?

I just picked up this '09 with "custom" black wheels...as the salesguy tried to point out until I pointed out the big chunk peeling off one of the wheels. Just based on the picture and the fact that I can peel black of in big sheets from one of the wheels, are these plasti-dipped? Is this stuff meant to be temporary? Only one is peeling but the other three are pretty chipped up around the edge. They put new tires on it so I'm guessing it's from that.

Yep, looks like the same finish so I'm guess the PO did both. The emblem seems to be holding up pretty well.

If its peeling off easy and in big chunks, chances are its plastidip. Powdercoat wouldn't peel like that, and paint would be in hard chunks
Plastidip

Pretty sure that's plasti dip. Looks like they also dipped the oem mopar side steps as well as the front emblem.

Most definitely Plasti-Dip. Those are stock rims that have been dipped. They do look good dipped, but you need to tell that salesman to take long walk off a short pier.

I was a little worried because initially he had mentioned fixing the wheel that was actually peeling, but after we got our deal done I don't think he was very happy because he wasn't putting any more money into it. Once I saw the Plati-Dip is only $25 or so I was fine with it. I'll probably see about just doing the one wheel and keeping the rest and doing the other wheels as they need it.

Couple questions....
will this stuff hold up going through a car wash?
Will I have to peel the rest off the wheel or can I just touch up the spots where it peeled?

The plasti-dip should hold up in the car wash if it was done properly (had enough coats put on). I would just take it easy the first time you wash it and make sure none is peeling afterwards. Unfortunately it is is peeling and you try to touch it up, you will see a ridge where the old plasti-dip ended and the new application started because it is put on in layers so you will get some plasti-dip on the old layers when you put it on the peeled off bit, making the old plast-dip higher. I would suggest just using a paint thinner or minerals spirits to thin the plasti-dip and try to get rid of the edge of the old stuff by spreading it out before applying new plasti-dip. That way there is no ridge when you apply more. Best of luck!

Good advice from the FarmBoy. You'd do well to follow his direction.

Should the color still match pretty well (assuming it is Plasti-Dip)? I'm not sure if this stuff fades over time cause if it does I'm not even sure how long ago it was put on. Would I be better off just peeling the one wheel and doing the whole thing?
