Installed my stealth black perrin quad tip exhaust.
Definitely one of the best sounding exhausts imo.

Yep, I kno firsthand that plastidip won't survive tire mounting. Don't even need index cards, just peel off the tire.

Will do -- as soon as the temps rise above 40s-50s around here, I'll put my summers back on.

My brother's Plasti Dipped wheels looked pretty good after mounting. There was a bit of scuffing though.

I highly suggest the index cards. Costs a buck and takes a minute. Peeling PlastiDip off of a tire is sometimes easy, and sometimes a huge PITA that takes forever. Trying to save 1 minute of work is not worth it at all.

Lol not really I'm not sure the plastidip will even outlast the tires, just curious if it does last for a while if I would have to peel it all off when I get tires...or I could get a flat and need new tires sooner than I think

You just have to clean the surface really well and layer it on thick enough so it doesn't tear. Any prep beyond cleaning defeats the purpose of plastidip

+1, no need to go crazy on the pre-clean before you put down the PD. Did it on my winter wheels on my M3 and all I did was clean the wheels well before and just did a good 4-5 layers and it held up through snow/sleet/rain/etc. and many many car washes (by hand) and it never even peeled anywhere. It's a great product

I just hope the metalizer makes them easier to clean. plain plastidip tends to get brake dust stuck in it making it look kind of grey after a while

Never had an issue with that. I just used the plastidip and the brake dust never stuck to the product. I went months without washing the wheels a few times and every time I cleaned them, they looked as good as they did when I first did them.

you are basically coating your wheel with rubber, its strong, but more porous(sp?) than paint

I dunno... I saw the index card suggestion, but my tires were freshly cleaned and waxed before I dipped... It literally took 3.5 seconds to wipe off the dip from the tires with a clean cloth as was suggested on the DipMyCar DIY...
