Hello,

I purchased a 2017 Volt - Premier. I notice allot of people are plati-dip their rims. I noticed my wheels are showing some chunks taken out of them. I live in Canada and we had allot of snow lately and I am guessing the sand/gravel the road crews put down might have caused this. I was looking at applying plastidip to the wheels. I am hoping this also protects it from the elements of winter. The rims are the better ones but in my experience OEM wheels are usually garbage no matter what they are. I am getting snow tires put on this week, they tried selling me steely's for the winter but I can put the cost towards a better set of wheels for the summer.

If anyone has any insights or experience please share.

Thanks.

Generally speaking plasti-dip (or like products) will give a modicum of protection from the elements as it is a rubberised coating.

On my previous car, a Prius, a few of the plastic hubcaps had some cracking and slivers broken off from the edges, which stuck out as the hubcaps were a gray on the outside and white inside. After using Rust Oleum's peel coat (a like product) most of the damage was undetectable unless you were closely inspecting the hubcaps.

If we could see a picture of the extent of the chucks, better advice could probably be had from myself or others (probably others).
