How To Plasti-Dip Your Wheels!!!

 

This is a little (actually long) write up on how to Plasti-Dip your wheels! Enjoy!


First off you're gonna need to decide if you will be painting them while they're still on or off. I've done it both ways and taking them off to do it takes more work and if you're limited to only a jack and no stands it will take a lot longer than leaving them on, BUT it results in a much better result because it's a lot harder to get drips since the surface with be horizontal instead of vertical.


After you decide which way you will do it, you need to prep the rims. This is fairly easy and can be done by washing them thoroughly. I washed them with water and wheel degreaser/cleaner and went ahead and cleaned the entire wheel instead of just the face. After washing you need to dry the wheel and make sure to get ALL the water off. If you leave the wheels on the car you might want to use cotton swabs to get the water out of the lug nut area, if not there will be a little puddle there that will run down when you start spraying!


After washing and drying you will need to start taping off areas that you do not want to paint. These include the thread for the wheel studs (which you can tape off by stuffing a little ball of tape into them), the tire valves (just wrap a piece of tape around them as close to the wheel without actually touching it as possible and do the same for the lug nuts if you left the wheels on the car), the center caps, and the back of the wheel. If you leave the wheels on the car, taping the back might be a bit difficult when you get to wear your brakes are, but if you take your time you will get it right!
