Has anyone used Plasti Dip on their wheels? If so, how did it look and how long does it last before needing a re-spray? Is it possible to do a touch up re-spray on chipped areas or does it require a peel and re-coat? How durable is this stuff?

You can always look to Cellbine's posts about plastidippign the wheels. He did have to do some minor touchups from time to time, but overall held up very well. As Nick also stated, don't skimp on the number of coats applied.

I've sprayed touch ups over top 18-24 month old plastic dip and it is not noticeable. The stuff blends/feathers nicely.

Mine I always had to touch up (front bumper) due to 3-5in locusts committing suicide on it.
A 5" locust? Holy sh☆☆! Can you imagine hitting a swarm at 60 mph an a motorcycle?

I have had my wheels painted for about a year and 20,000 miles of driving with no issues. The grill and chrome strip around the windows is also done and have had some chipping on the grill, but touchup is easy and not a problem.

Dooley can you post a couple of pictures of your work? I am interested in seeing the grill and chrome strip rework. Which Plasi Dip color did you select to coat them?

Had my wheels, chrome trim, grill and silver done...So far I love it..
Looks good! Did you remove your grill before dipping it? and have you had any problems with it bubbling or chipping so far?

When dip chips....you just spray right over it
