If you do several light layers over the part you want to touch up, it will come out like it never even happened. The great thing about PlastiDip is you can layer it on over and over again and as long as no one layer is too thick it will look great no matter how many times you go over it. It meshes with itself very nicely.

I already replaced four of my wheels but my spare is still factory so I think I am going to plastidip it so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

x2 on the rustoleum paint. i used playing cards inbetween the rim and the tire, and used the method of clean, sand, clean....then apply a few coats. Yes.....you can't peel it off like PlastiDip, but you can just paint over it. Any nicks can be touched up pretty easily.

The only warning is when you go to balance your tires, tell the shop to do an "inner" balance. This will place the silver wheel weights on the inside of the rim (invisible) instead of the outside (stick out like sore thumbs). I chose to stick with factory lugs instead of aftermarket black lugs for a bit of contrast....but may change.

I used dupli wheel paint from Canadian tire turned out good but recently had my wheel rebalanced and the shop was a little rough with them. Also my wheels were destroyed from previous owner very rough looking.

I plastidipped my spare today, it was easy and turned out pretty good for a 15 minute project.
