I actually was thinking about this thread the other day. I appreciate plasti dip only because it made me realize that black rims do not look nice on my car and it saved me from going and getting my style 44s powercoated.

Just did mine.....saved me $$$ was going to upgrade rim but already had stock 17's in perfect shape......plastic dip is way more forgiving then other aerosol spay....easy to remove just peels right off....

I didn't and mine came out fine however I spent about an hour and a half prepping the brakes and covering them with trash bags. Not a single spec of plastidip went onto my brakes
