    ive plasti dipped other stuff but not wheels and never had a problem with it.
    i always start with like 2 thinner base coats and then start applying it really thick for a additional 3-6 coats and let it dry.

    Powder coating is cheap compared to the labor and time that you put into that, this is just a recommendation. If you want to do it your self good on you, post a pic though I'm sure everyone would be interested to see how it turns out.

    My son plasti-dipped the wheels on his Neon SRT4. He had it on the about 6 months before one wheel started peeling. He recently took the plasti-dip off and repainted them.

    Just don't plasti-dip your brake rotors in the process.

    I know this thread is a little old, but I have my entire Jeep plastidipped Camo Tan and Black. It looks totally badass and looks like a military vehicle. My coworker plastidipped his chrysler 300C gunmetal first, then sprayed white over that. I've had the plastidip on my Jeep for a year now, and 4 weekend off road trips in the woods later, and 15,000 miles, it still looks great! I'm getting ready to respray my Jeep camo green here in a couple weeks...I love the stuff!

    I did my lower cowl in black Plasti-dip then went over it with a metallic Sharpie. It has held up good so far, although it has only been about 3-4 months and I only ride twice a week.

    Ive done it on a GTO and a year later they look pretty good! The only issue is cleaning. If you go to hard they tear and flake.
