    I have to say this stuff works pretty good. It didn't leave the best finish in the world on it, but I didn't prep the wheel at all, but from what I've seen on tech it leaves a good one.

    The nicest thing about it though, is that if you don't like it you can just peel it off.





    It comes in a few basic colors, and is available at Home Depot or on the site. I give this stuff a big

    If you can just peel it off, I doubt its going to withstand anything a road is going to throw at it.

    It is mainly just a temp type of material. I peeled it off that shooter today, but as far just trying things out its pretty good.

    if they made it in a gloss, or maybe you could put clear on it, I think that'd be cool. This seems to be a less fuss-n-cuss thing to deal with lol
