I plasti dipped my rims- a video

OK, I plasti dipped my rims (for my winter tires) and I'm really happy with how they turned out. Unfortunately I found out that the wheels don't fit my new car (335i cab), as they came off my 02 330ci.
Anyways, here's a video of how they turned out if anyone wants to see.

I had some friends plastidip my stock set of 18 inch winters for the m3 in a new colour called OEM silver. I'm very happy with it, i'll post pics later.

Thanks! Yeah, the guy made it look easy, but he's a real pro. I would never DIY a wrap.

plastidip is great. I've had my wheels dipped since '10, its very sturdy even with powerwashing. but I think for '14 I will take them off, and go with their fushia pink or blue.

so to those who have done this on wheels - When you tighten your lug nuts, doesn't it tear through the plastidip?

I always wondered how durable the plastidip was for rims. I may have to give this a shot myself!

How much does the plastidip run per can? How many cans did you use?

mine was a special colour so it was 20 a can, we used 4.5 cans or so for 3-4 generous coats on a set of wheels.

i have a number for one of the distributors here in toronto, i'll try to look it up

in the 3 yrs that I have coated my rims, if your careful on how you put in the lug and use the wrench you wont scratch a thing. Also if you do, you can respray that area and the area will look untouched (somehow the new and old will merge and build up the scratch). I would leave them on but I see so many black rims now that its time to go another color as stated above.
