    No, no insult inferred. I was just making my point in contrast to yours. I have used it in the past, and have no qualms about using it in the future. I just know that its nearly the equivalent of plastidipping your belly skids and hoping a few touchups here and there will get you by.

    If you drive only street and/or conditions where your rims will not touch anything, then it's a great product. If you wheel a lot, then its not. That's all I'm staying.

    And I truly believe you would know the best about the importance of touching up a trail damaged slider/wheel/skid. 😁


    My ride- 2001 power wheel, 11" plastic tires, upgraded battery, boat sides, custom bumpers, tow hooks, new paint.

    How many cans did you use? I think I've got about half of a can sitting around.

    I used about three and half cans in total, and that got all 5 wheels.

    Sorry to revive an older thread but are the cards absolutely necessary? I've heard the plasti-dip will just peel off the tires cleanly.

    I'm asking because I'm about to do my XJ's wheels.

    Did my old set. As long as you use a thick enough coating around the edge, it should all peel up relatively easy. If there is any small pieces you missed, then as you drive they will loosen up and you can catch em

    this! I never used any "barrier" when I did an old set of wheels a while back...I rubbed it off with my hands after it dried(or you can leave it because its almost unnoticeable since it's black rubber on on black rubber)

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
