ST250 Wheels plasti-dipped

Postby JP870609 » Thu Sep 17, 2015 10:38 am

Hi guys, below a couple of images of my wheel transformation..

I am very happy with the result, loving my black wheels.. Brake dust, what brake dust? :D

It's been about three weeks now and the plasti dip on the wheels and mirrors are solid, it's not as fragile as you might think it is. With the right cleaning chemicals the color doesn't fade or getting any white water marks.
This was done by plasti dip centurion, I considered doing it myself - but after seeing what they accomplish with the high pressure spray hoses even layers etc. I didn't even think twice before taking the car to them.

Thanks Cornel.

They have Armor dip in the stores for top layer to give it extra strength and durability.

Do you think a wheel spanner could tear the plastic when changing wheels etc if whoever is doing it is a bit heavy handed.

Looks great. I would love to do my whole car but I'm very skeptical about the durability of the coating
