How long does it stay on? Would I have to remove the tire from the rim.

Nice find!

Not sure how long. I've yet to do mine but you can keep the tire on. I think the plasti dip peels real easily off of rubber. (Rubber on rubber doesn't stick well, i would imagine) if not, just tape it off.

Indy's got aftermarket rims if I'm remembering correctly so that would not necessarily be true for you. Have you done the pinch weld yet?

Nice I've got the same size. But yea I hear ya about the weather, not much better here in MA. Once you get the pinch weld done there should be no rubbing at all though!
