Plasti-Dip

Has anyone "shined" their plasti-dipped wheels? I want to make them a little darker with some tire shine I wasn't sure if anyone has tried or what products would work. I don't want to mess up my wheels.

Foam, spray, or tire dressing?

I always use tire shine on them to shine them for a few days, or however longer it holds on. I definitely need to redo with gloss soon.

You could always try clear coat paint as well. Just make sure to find one that says flexible or for plastic.
