Soap and water. If you have a pressure washer don't get to close to it with the pressure washer. It will peel it especially if you get close to an edge.

I use simple green and just soap and water, I use a sheep skin MIT as well to scrub them, and thanks, I love these wheels too other than the price to buy 16" tires

Have any if you guys had an issue with the dip coming out rough? One of mine are rough and doesn't like to come clean. Wondering if I can spray over it or I should peel and redo it.

I don't know what I did but one is rough. I might peel them and polish the crap out if my wheels and try to find a way to keep them shiny that's why I dipped mine my wheels get nasty fast

If you put coats on too thick it will be a little rough. Try lighter coats

I think that's what I did it was the last wheel and it was getting dark and I wanted to get done so I went to town on it.

I haven't yet. If/when I do this next fall, I might try it over the anthracite colour. My dip came out pretty good, but I just think the flat black is on the edge of being too much, maybe the glossifier would have made it more likable to me. I haven't been on their website in a while, but I'd like to see a clear version. Might even almost take the place of clearcoat for us laymen. Just a thought.

Anthracite actually looks killer, I did my GFs cobalt SS rims in it, turned out really nice actually being the flat, not glossy

Well, just went to the plastidip forum. It appears there IS a clear. Matte, satin, and gloss were mentioned in the forums, but I didn't see much details. At least I know now. Just a good possibility of doing my good wheels for next winter, maybe even before I put them on this spring.

Ya, there were a few photos as well. I think it was satin that caught my eye sprayed over chrome. Got my braincells warmed up, thinking that "might" look good for my 150, maybe tone the chrome down a bit.
