    Interesting. Never considered doing this. Any tips you learned while doing it and wouldn't mind sharing?

    How easy is it to keep clean given the notorious BMW brake dust?

    A DAMN long time. It's basically a rubber coating that you have to peel off.

    The white looks good. You can power wash Pastidip so it shouldn't be too bad...

    Clean the rim thoroughly and wipe down with alcohol just before you spray them.

    Yep, simple. Should not require anything else than a clean surface.

    Good to know, thanks. Going to use this as a way to tell if I want to replace my OEM wheels with black or titanium/graphite. I have some black plasti dip already so I may as well try it out.

    Thanks guys!

    Brake dust pro is what I use to keep it clean, spray it on leave it for 2mins and wash it off, perfectly clean everytime it's so easy.

    Prep took 15mins, didn't even take the wheels off: Click here to enlarge

    i did mine for almost 4 months with weekly hand wash never had issue with them and some. i used white as primer then 4 to 5 of black layers. the more you spray the thicker layer gets it will become durable and easier to peel off.

    tips
    - if you want powder coating looking texture, then last layers spray it from 20 to 30"
    - smooth surface then spray from 3 ~ 4"
    - use Spray Can Trigger Handle.
