how much plasti dip?

I want to plasti dip my stock rims and im not sure how many cans i should order. Ive seen people say it took 5 cans to do all 5 rims and then someone else said 1.5, 2,3..any help?

I have to order online bc there is no where around here that sells it, id rather not paint two rims then have to wait a week for more dip

I'd suggest going with at least three cans. It took me a little less than two cans to coat my entire hood, so if you think about the surface area of your wheels compared to the surface area of the hood... three cans should be about right.
