I don't know much at all about plastidip. Is it really that easy to remove? Does it do any damage to the item being covered?

Yea the metallic looks hot this kit was the aluminum kit. You paint black first then pearl and it makes it silver. The process is really easy to do and I did purposely get over spray on your tires and it peeled off nice. It will be harder to peel off the less coats you put. They recommend 3 to 4 coats for easy peel.

I really like the look of that!! I also like that it isn't permanent. If your mind changes so can the color. Well played, sir!

Thanks there was no way I was about to spray paint them with regular paint. This way if I mess up I just peel and start again lol. Rear tires are gonna get done today. Pics with them on the car coming later on this afternoon

I understand that removing colored PlastiDip from wheels is more difficult than plain black is.

Excellent job. Do you have a pic of the original wheel color before the black coat? Could you have left the polished lip exposed, or was it black?
