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.
My only fear would be once my rig is covered in it, some smart@$$ from GL4x4 would peel out a nasty word, or worse in it.
