Make sure you thoroughly clean your wheels with a good brake dust removal cleaner. Make sure they are also dry and that you have given your Jeep and its brakes plenty of time to cool down.

Step 3: Tape off your wheels

Use the painters tape to mask the wheel nuts and valve stem to protect them from the Plasti-dip spray. Use the screwdriver to make sure the tape is pressed down to the nuts.

Step 4: Cut the garbage bag and insert

Cut the garbage bag down the seam to make a flat sheet of plastic. Start by stuffing the bad into one of the open spokes of the Jeep wheel.

Step 5: Wrap the bag around the brake

Hold the can about 12 inches from the wheel and spray in light fast swipes until the wheel has a complete coat.

Step 8: Second Coat

Allow the first coat to dry for at least 20 minutes before applying the second coat. Be sure to cover the entire wheel with the second coat as it can be harder to see that you have full coverage.

Step 9: Remove the bag and tape

Allow at least 30 minutes after the second coat to make sure the plasti-dip is completely dry before removing the painters tape and plastic bag. Carefully remove the tape and slide the plastic bag out the same way you put it into the wheel.
