Does the bed liner work better than the wheel paint?

much more forgiving, also much more rugged. just doesn't have the glossiness of paint.

Paint has a cleaner more professional look but bed liner is more durable

I have had 0 problems with mine to date. I have had a whole new set of tires put on. It did nothing to the tires, and even had one reseated. No problems.

I have one spot that peeled off that I must have missed sanding because it feels glossy smooth still. But it's only like the size of a penny. Everywhere else on all four rims are perfect still. It's been about 6 months

even if it does peel a little, just hit it with another shot real quick. takes no time. and on second thought I did have one wheel that I scratched on a rock while offroading and I had to touch up. it have to have been replaced on a painted or polished wheel. this truly is the way to go.

I know this thread is kinda old, but when you take your wheel off, what is all this talk about weights? I've put on spare tires before but don't remember anything about "weights"?

Thanks.

weights are either hooked or stuck to your rims. It;s whats used to balance a tire when it is mounted to your rim. I left my weights on and painted over them. since you had wheel covers, you "may" have had the weights on the back of the rim. If so, no need to worry about them at all. If they are on the front, you can either leave them, or pull them off and then put them back on. If you remove them, make SURE the go back in the exact same spot.

Anyone of these if you have them on the front of the rim, stick on's if you have them on the back. Post a close up of your rim and I'll point them out if your still having problems.

Painted my rims

Okay bare with me boys this is my second post on the forum. First I would like to give my appreciation for all the knowledge you guys have given me over the last few months. I refused to post anything on here until I thought it was worth while, so here it is. I used your guys idea on painting my aluminum wheels black. I used the Rustoleum bed liner for this project. I would really appreciate it if you guys would give me some feed back positive or negative on how it looks. Thanks alot for the knowledge that you all provided me on this awesome look.

I finally got around to painting the Gamblers on the Jeep. I'm undecided as to whether or not I'll go aftermarket later, but for now I'm really happy with the way they turned out. You can see the passenger side before, and the driver side after.

Thanks man! The camo is a vinyl wrap from MetroRestyling.com. It was cheaper than paint, and I love the look. In a few years I can always peel it off and change to a different color or pattern if I want.

I needed a little less than three 48"x72" sheets, at around $100 per sheet. I actually got a little bit of a discount in exchange for providing pics of the finished camo.
