Default Rim Painting?

Yo, whuzzzzzzup?!

So, I was thinking about using Plasti Dip to paint my rims black. I'm going to paint the rims black and keep the caps chrome.

Has anyone ever used Plasti Dip? I looked around and I just like the fact that if I don't like it, then I can always just peel off the rubber (Plasti Dip is a rubber, if I'm 100% correct).

Awesome, thanks! Did you leave the tires and everything on and just peel off whatever went on the tires and what-not? I don't want to take the tires and stuff off. Also, did you tape anything behind the rim? Or anywhere at all?

Better to take off the truck as the tires them selfs you can peel off what gets on them or use the dollar store flash card trick
