This is for 250 riders who don't want to dump a bunch of money into a 250 that they will be selling as soon as they learn on the bike. The plasti dip worked very well, no problems at all and the stuff was pretty durable.

you should like them if you spray them the correct way. really, nobody will know the difference. I just traded in my cbr250r not too long ago and the dealer probably assumed they were powder-coated. lol he gave me top dollar for my trade for a cbr600rr.

Yeah, for the work involved, it's just as easy for me to sandblast and powdercoat my rims. At least most of the time.

And then you only have to do it once....

Why plastidip, not regular paint?

I don’t get that either. I can just imagine the next owner of his old bike trying to clean grease off of the rear wheel and having the plasti-dip just peel off. You can get a better, and more importantly, a permanent finish with a can of krylon. The entire point of people painting things with plasti-dip is the ease in which it comes off.

Plasti-dip so if I do not like the new color of my wheels I can peel it off in 5 minutes and be back to stock.

Doesn't plasti-dip have an issue with actual staying power? As in, it wears/peels away pretty quickly.
