    The only thing offset is your perception. These are 20x10 wheels and they don't stick out that much.

    I like the inside of the wheels, but not so much on the roof.

    I've been toying with painting my rims flat black or something other than what they currently are, and this looks like it will be a good alternative. If i don't like it, i can just peel it off! I didn't read every single post in this thread, but has anyone had any issues with taking it off if the result is undesired?

    I have pulled it off of some other items without issue and even from painted panels. I did see a thread where a guy had some chrome plating pull off with it but it seems to be a bad finish to start with as this didn't really stick when pulling it off.

    My wheels are polished so im not worried about finishing coming off..

    No prep is really needed other then getting the wheels super clean right?

    Sand then apply another coat of clear. I doubt you'd be able to polish because the heat of the buffer would likely remove the Plasti-Dip.... worth a try though, it's not like you're going to wreck anything :lol:

    Plasti dip seems like it would be a good fix to cracked cowl covers after reading all this stuff

    Finally able to get some pictures of my plastidip project. It turned out pretty good I think. I was debating about painting the area before hand but I'm still not 100% sold. Enjoy the redneck nectar:
