Plasti-dip or high temp paint?

Going to do a temporary fix on my wheels and can't decide if it would be better to do plastidip or high temp spray paint?? Any thoughts or tips???

I've had plasti dip on my rims since early November and have no brake dust build up. They actually wipe clean really easily with the proper amount of coats.

That's why I am asking for advice and see what opinions I get

Re: Plasti-dip or high temp paint?

Plastidip is more temporary and very forgiving for amateur painters, screw up and you can peel it off, regular paint will last longer but harder to repair if you have any rock chips. If you have the time,I would recommend powdercoat will last longer than both and has hundreds of colors availed depending on the vendor. That being said I plastidipped my wheels on the Silverado and even after a few off-road trips with
Ots of mud they still look great, watch a few videos because it's not like typical spray paint and must be sprayed with thick coats.

My plan is to eventually powder coat but I don't have time to take off wheels and tires for 7 days to get then done right now

I'd say just plasti-dip it. Quick easy and no prep really just make sure they're clean

Re: Plasti-dip or high temp paint?

Winter wheels have been on since December 15th and already have an ice chip flake on the rear passenger.

Also, 2 coats of clear coat on top doesn't keep road salt from clinging to them spokes. And I have seen other plasti dipped cars as recently as yesterday, that also exhibited the same thing.

It's an ok temporary solution (my painted winter rims where beginning to flake) but if you're looking for a mid to long term clean solution, PD sucks.
