matte finishes are "in" these days. it's easy to achieve a matte finish with very little prep/finish time - so while the materials may be similar to the cost of paint, reasonable results can be had much easier with plastidip for the average backyard hack than if they were using primer/base/top coat of regular auto paint.

not happy with the results? peel it. no need to sand/chemically treat, etc.

want to change colors? peel and respray - again not as difficult as stripping real paint.

I will probably eventually do the OEM VW Rims when I get two of them straightened out for winter tires, and to change the look/color for part of the year.
