Do you guys get your wheels checked for balance after dipped and has anyone noticed if it did effect balance?

Just curious as I know a rock can through off the balance so was wondering if. 4-5 coats of plasti dip would.

Also what did you do for over spray on the inside of the rim and brakes if you left them on the Jeep?

I haven't noticed any imbalance after dipping the wheels. But I wouldn't know exactly what to look for. I just know it drives the same.
And I would do what I did and just take the wheels off. Easy enough.

There are a ton of plasti dip videos on youtube. A lot of folks are leaving wheels on and putting a trash bag around the breaks. Looks easy enough.

I just did mine (pics near the end of page 1) and I left the wheels on. I shoved paper towel, paper.. anything behind the wheel for the overspray. I didnt get a single speck on my brakes.

ALSO - That manila folder trick for the overspray on the outside of the rim where it meets the tire didn't work for me. I couldnt get the folder pieces to fit in there at all. So I took some tuck tape, that red really sticky one you use for the vapor barrier in your house and did little pieces all around. It's not the easiest way, but it got the job done.

Also be careful about indirect overspray if you know what I mean.

If that doesn't make sense it's because I'm french

No, all you have to do is spray the whole thing as per normal and later when the whole project is done you can go around and purposely scratch up and peel the center part. It will tear right at the border there around the circle leaving a clean line
I've seen it done. Works well.

Plasti dip looks like some pretty cool stuff. I may try dipping my stock wheels until I can squirrel away enough $$ to buy some new wheels. Thanks for the info and pics.

How long does this plasti-dip hold up before you have to repaint the area?

+1 did this with black, 1 can per wheel (4-5 coats usually). It looked really good! I'll be using a black and red mixture next time to achieve a darker red. I personally took each of the wheels off because I didn't want to mess with masking things off and the 'chrome' lug-nuts contrast the flat black of the plasti-dip really well!

I have had my wheels dipped for two Arizona summers as well and it holds up in the heat and mud. But be careful when applying tire shine! Sh*% will eat away the plastidip. No problem tho just ad a couple coats and good as new.

Also this past weekend I just dipped my grill and some angry eyes! we will see how it holds up but I do not expect any problems.

Love the stuff for temporary mods while I embezzle $$ from my accounts without the Mrs. noticing!

I have a small rust spot on the front fender. Can I just sand it down, primers and put this over it? How long does it last before I will need to redo it? I'm planning on doing the front of both fenders and a 3" strip across the hood. Any tips on when to pull the tape for a clean line? Thanks.

It should last you a while... a couple years easy. When it does need to be replaced it is easy to peel off or there are degreasers that will eat the stuff away.
Through researching I read that you should let the dip dry before peeling off the tape. If you let it dry then you will want to follow the tape with an exacto knife to ensure it doesnt peel off. I had to redo one headlight of my angry eyes because I didnt do this then pulled off the tape and it peeled some dip off with it.

I just reapplied it and pulled the tape off while the last coat was still wet and it came out just lovely

If your doing a strip then you shouldn't let it dry first. There's a video on YouTube about it but in order to not risk the plasti dip sticking to the tape and then pulling up the plasti dip along with the tape your supposed to tape off where you want the strip and then spray the plasti dip on really thick and then pull the tape off as soon as your done spraying and letting it dry without the tape. This is so the tape doesn't bring up the plasti dip.

That's also on YouTube lol. Guy throws a ton of mud on his car he dipped completely white an then goes and scrubs and pressure washes it and it looked exactly the same as before the mud. I've heard though that you want to wait at least three days for it to completely get "settled" to your car so I wouldn't wash it for a while after you do it.

I just did my grill, although I used bedliner. Your best bet is to go get some painters plastic. You can get it cheap at any home improvement place or hardware store. Use that to cover the front of the jeep up over the windshield. Take some cardboard and slide it behind the grill to keep spray out of the radiator and use painters tape and newspaper for anything left exposed on the front end. Then spray away.

Just clean it regularly like you would the paint on the truck, I've even powder washed it after a weekend of wheeling and it held up perfectly so far
