I guess it makes sense that tire shine would work, after all plasti dip is just rubber!
But good idea!
Props for that!

Welcome to last year. :P Lol in all seriousness though, if you switch brands of tire shine make sure you test again. Some tire shines will make the plastidip bubble up for a day or so and it peels off verrrrryyyyy easily when that happens.


Wheel gap is like a vagina… The more fingers you can fit, the worse it is.

Platsi dip says not to wash the car for a couple days after applying. I have some on the lower rear of the car and it has been through a car wash a couple times with no issues. Not sure if the Wheel Cleaner in a carwash would hurt it or not?
