Decided to try out plasti dip on my wheels. I also painted my calipers. BTW the stuff that looks like grease on the wheels is just clear un-even clearcoat Sad IMO they kind of look like 9C1 wheels from a distance

I'm using Plasti-Dip on my grille as we speak. I like how it sprays and dries nice and uniform like. No sanding required. The wheels look good with the cap and lugs. Can this stuff hold up too caliper heat?

I believe not. Somewhere on here someone posted the heat temp of plastidip. It was when the convo was about plastidip on exhaust tips

How well do you think plasti-dip would hold up in the winter? I was thinking about doing this to my winter beater.

Yes, And I tried it on the exhaust tips anyway and it was fine. No issues. I just decided I liked chrome better than black and took it off after about two weeks.

I think it would hold up very well. IMO I think it depends on the number of coats you put on. From what I can tell the only thing that make this stuff peel off is a very abrasive object brushing against it really hard

I didn't put clearcoat on mine and the plasti-dip texture on the wheels tends to attract dust, it's easy to clean off, but they seem to get dirty quick.
We'll see if the clearcoat prevents that.

Only thing you need be aware of with the clear coat. Plastidip will not peel off like normal with the clear coat on top. I becomes MUCH harder to remove.

I realized that when I had to redo one of the wheels. It was such a pain in the rear
