Default Thinking of un-plastidipping my wheels

With as much dirt and mud as this truck sees it's almost impossible to keep the plastidip looking good. So, I am thinking about pulling it off. Your thoughts?

Maybe peel it off and go with something more permanent

OK, it's off. That wasn't too bad... I'll roll with the chrome for now and decided what to do later...

They're not really chrome, but polished aluminum, which will be even better for powder coating.

Powder coat them then, that'll look good!

Eventually I might, but that's a huge pain in the ass. Have to put the truck on jackstands, get them to the tire shop to break them down, drop off at the powder coater, wait for them to get done, then mount and balance the tires. I don't want it done that bad right now... When it comes time for new tires, I'll see what I can do...

Imagine doing all that for nothing
