Did you use/do anything special to clean them before you sprayed?
Just wash your wheels well and you should be ready to spray once they are dried.

Nope I didn't need to do any special prepping. Enjoy your "new" wheels!

It was easy with a buddy.. we did several coats.. it has imperfections but it's a jeep.. I have holes in my fenders to ask I don't really care.. I think it's way better than before and wasn't that expensive . Buy 4 cans to start out

IndianaBones I love plasti-dip. I've used it on my fender flares, mirrors, and front bumper. The thing about it is you must do a thick job or else it is hard to peel off. I have pressure washed it plenty of times, dirt comes off easy, and if it doesnt you just wipe out off real quick. The only time I messed it up was when I got the pressure washer 2 inches from it and sprayed as hard as I could. Put a one inch gash in the plasti-dip. Got home and did like 2 sprays on the affected area and good as new. Really makes faded plastic look good

I have a plan to plastidip my whole jeep, Jurassic park style. Then olive drab for the 4th of July.

michiganhunter How is it to wash mud and dirt off? Does the mudstains come off it easily and still like the day you put it on?

Chandlertl13 I used plasti dip on my grill and mirrors of my WJ. It got a chip in the grill and there is no way to repair the plasti dip other than removing it & doing it over. I took it off the grill and left it chrome again. It took some rubbing and peeling but grill is back to previous state. The mirrors still look good though. I haven't used any on my TJ but I plan on using the rustoleum bedliner on my mirrors......

I used Rustoleum Wax, Tar & Adhesion remover. 3M also makes it.

I went to paint my mirrors today with Plasti Dip. I had a little left in the can, and wouldn't you know it, the cap was clogged. I threw it away and washed my Jeep instead. Lol.

2003x Jeep lover is right. Do not wipe it with anything for a few days. It is dry to touch in about 4 hours, but dont wipe it. He is right, dont leave the tape on, as soon as your done with your last coat, remove the blue tape. I left mine on and it pulled the dip off a bit.
