I Plastidipped my trim a couple years ago. Unfortunately it will peel off after a while. I've never heard of doing it to tires. Confused

I dont understand the whole plasti-dip phenomenon. Why not just do things the right way?

Have peeling wheels? Sand, Prime, Paint, its that easy.

I have seen people using this crap on everything. I just dont get it.

6 dollar per can and 20 minutes vs however much in materials and hours (with dry time) to paint. And it doesn't look bad at all. Not to mention, lets say, 5 months down the road you want switch colors all you have to do is peel it off.

It's the speed at which society,(the one we created / let happen),seems to dictate the aforementioned approach. And,as I will reluctantly admit,I find myself guilty of that more often than I would like. But,I still ain't Plast-Dipping my tires. Shocked

thats exactly right, but its not a lot more to do it correctly and if your money is that tight you shouldnt be modding. Its a matter of a couple dollars, not hundreds or dollars.

I wish that mindset was confined to cars. I've been spending the better part of my free time over the last 2 months fixing half-assed work done by the previous owner of my girlfriend's house... It never ceases to amaze me what people will do do save a few bucks.
