Plasti dip Gemini Wheels

Looking to plasti dip my Gemini wheels, and was wondering if I need to sand/scotch bright the covers before using the dip? I thought it was needed before painting, but others dont seem to do so.

I was hoping someone with expertise could let me know!

I planned on removing the caps, washing them with soap/water, then alcohol. Then doing 4/5 light layers over.

@Hasek2 check YouTube, there's at least a few videos of people doing this. I don't recall any of them sanding or doing anything but cleaning. I believe most did a few more coats however--7 or 8.
