I posted a couple pictures of my truck in the "show off your fx4" thread around August last year after I had plastidipped my wheels. I promised an update after running them for the winter.
- about a can and change for all 4 wheels
- multiple light coats (6 or more)
- as stated, done in late summer so they've been on for about 9-10 months
First picture was from my original post and second picture was taken yesterday.
As you can see, colour has faded slightly, likely due to southwestern Ontario's love of salty roads and the occasional dirt road tour. I'very found that if I hit the wheels with armour all tire foam that it brings them back 5 black.
Overall it's held up pretty well despite having slightly more than one can split across 4 wheels. Had her stuck a couple times in the snow withe all four spinning. Ran it through an automated car wash 45 times from December to February (a buddy and I split on a 90 day wash card at petrocan - worth every penny btw) There's a few spots that have worn off but hard to notice until you're up close.
3. Cosmetic satisfaction:
Was very satisfied with the result when I first painted them and I think they still look pretty dang good after all they've been through. Plus for a $5 can of rubber paint you can't really go wrong. I'll probably put a couple more coats on this week or next just to freshen them up a bit. I'd rather have a set of kmc's but until that's in the budget plastidip will do just fine.
Can post more/better pictures upon request.
