How to clean Plastic Dip on your mags
I just wanted to share a tip on how to clean plastic dip on your mag wheels. Yesterday after the car wash, got home, the mags did not look clean at all. So I took out the Tyre Gloss Spray and tried a little on the mag.
Praise It worked like a charm. No need to do anything else, just spray on and leave.

you can apply liquid wax as well. i use the Motip liquid wax, sprays on easily and comes off just as easily Thumbs

leaves a nice semi gloss look to the wheels too.

Yes bud

If look closely, you will see I did the boot spoiler as well. The roof has vinyl.

OK, looks coolThumbs


I have questions.

1) How durable is the finish?
2)What prep work did you do?
3)In terms of maintenance, do you ever have to 'touch up' the wheels?

The reason i ask is that i've been contemplating trying it out, but i have concerns about how long before the stuff starts peeling off.

And wont the heat from the brakes affect the plasti-dip also?

3)In terms of maintenance, do you ever have to 'touch up' the wheels?

Firstly, I am no expert, I tried it the first time 3 weeks ago. So I stand corrected if someone knows more.

1) I did mine 3 weeks ago, never had to do anything, except for yesterday when I went to the car wash and they scrubbed the tires and caught the edges of the rim after me telling them not to touch it. I Just touched up the edges as it builds layers and was good as new. That's when I discovered the tyre polish works wonders.

2) Just make sure your mag is clean, no masking is needed. Just peel unwanted bits when done. I have posted some videos I used when I did mine. Very helpful. I did mine in doors and used a hair dryer as the weather changed and I did not want any dust on the mags as I sprayed them. It dries really quick. Suggest you get all wheels off when doing them otherwise you gonna be doing 3-4 layers on a mag and waiting for it to dry. I did them 2 by 2.

3) Only if you like the curbs or wash it incorrectly. It can withstand hight temps, so no need to worry about the mag getting hot etc. In 1 of the vids(can't seem to find it), the guys did it on the car BUT you must mask it properly or you gonna end up with plastic on your brakes. THAT won't be good for you.










Youtube has a lot of videos about this product.

Hope this helps guys.

RE: How to clean Plastic Dip on your mags
1 can gets you around 3 coats on the 4 mags, suggest you get yourself 2 cans so when you need to touch up, you not gonna battle to find it as it goes like hot cakes.
Also, very easy to apply. I am in IT, so you can imagine.

You guys are most welcome.
