My wheels were already spray painted black when I bought the car. It'd be nice to restore them to OEM silver, but seemed like that would cost a lot (broke atm), so I plastidipped them white.

Lemme know what you think

Before

Definitely an improvement but it'd be better if it was PWP.

How easy is that stuff to clean? I can imagine a rubber choosing would grip on the piece of cloth you use to clean it. Is it like that? Or is it different?

I haven't attempted to clean it yet, im hoping car shampoo and water will suffice. I've read on google that tire cleaner works well though, since theyre both rubber ._.

When you touch it, does it feel like its sticky? Can you run your finger across it without it gripping? I'm really curious to see how that feels like... If its too grippy, it can peel off with just one wipe

The plastidip is somewhat grippy, and feels textured (I thought it'd feel smooth judging from pictures) but I can still run my fingers across it. There's a plastidip thread that was made recently that you could post this question in. Ill let you know how shampooing the plastidip goes.

As a side note, the plastidip looks ok in pictures, and maybe 5+ feet away, but looking up close, there are pinholes.. Didn't expect that since when I sprayed it it was a smooth white layer and after it dried the pinholes appeared :[ Im ok with it though.
