I took my wheels off and did one at time so I could prep better. I bought a package of 1/2 sized index cards from Walgreens and slid them in between the tire and the wheel edge to form a lip and sprayed 3 or 4 very light coats.

For the caps, I wiped Vaseline on the sombrero and sprayed a few light coats. The Vaseline lets you just wipe the plastidip off without peeling the whole thing. I'm pretty tech......

before and after...I didn't like it at first, but now it's grown on me. I have to respray after every trip because of rock scrapes though. It doesn't hold up well. That's a PITA.
