A good how-to, here, with photos: Plasti Dip Coating Wheels

And others found under the Advanced Search tool:

Black rims- paint or bedline or plastidip?

No problems for me so far.
Use the pressure wash at the car wash.

Last question. What if I wanted to take it off. Would a power washer do the trick?

Goo gone works well, but i used wd-40 it came off 10x better. Spray them really good with the wd40 and then pressure wash off. Took maybe 5-10 mins on each wheel.

Wouldn't the paint get nicked and start peeling if you go off road or take dirt roads a lot?
