I've come to the conclusion the wheels are plastidipped!

So.....I've been cleaning these wheels with regular cleaning products with good results...mainly the foam wheel and tire cleaners Meguiars and Mother's. Should I change what I'm doing for cleaning these? I figure they were done pretty good. We've had the car several months now. How long might this (stuff) last if taken care of properly? Maybe I should have known before now since there is a slight texture to the wheels. Both products get the brake dust off, and generally leave a spot free surface. However...it seems to be getting harder to get the same results as time goes on. I've said before that I didn't want a product that required brushing the wheels agressively since I figured the finish sort of fragile.
I peeled the plasti dip crap off the front grille soon after we got this Mustang because it was peeling, and right then and there I made up my mind that plasti dip was crap. Of course prep and application make a difference.


Black means black. If there is any chrome involved, it's not black anymore. Just sayin'

The previous owner also plast dipped my car wheels all black to match, at first it was ok, then you start to notice it spots that's peeling. I looked into it and debated if I wanted to 're dipp' the wheel, but it really just a cheap gimmick for temporary looks, unless you are willing to take it off and change color every couple months. I just ended buying new wheels and tires, never looked back.
