Does Plastidip cover curb rash?

So yeah, blah, blah, blah, Plastidip is cheap. Lol

Now that's out of the way, I just got some style 95s. They've got some rash around them and I kinda want them white. I'm not 100% on wanting to keep them white permanently, so I want to try it out with Plastidip.

Onto the real question: should I worry about putting the rash before I Plastidip or does it do a pretty good job of covering it up?

its still visible but barely noticeable. I p-dipped my stock rims for winter and it looks super nice for the first few days until its impossible to keep them clean! the dirt clings to it like glue!

Thanks for the feedback. I'm still trying to decide if I should even buy some.

yes and no. If you look up close the curb rash is still slightly visible as it doesn't fill in the cracks. However it does make it significantly less noticeable.

I actually took my plasti-dip off my rims today, it was starting to rip off.

Well, I'm planning on actually refinishing my wheels over Spring break. Just looking for a temp solution. Sounds like it's good enough for me.
