if you're really inaccurate with lots of overspray, then tape newpaper either behind, or on top of the playing card step flashing.
spray, and allow to dry
yank out cards, and paper. dispose. put rims/tire combo back on rig
Or just put a liberal amount of tire shine on the tire and spray the wheel. The plastidip sticks to the wheel and comes right off the tire without having to mask it off.
