Yes, but it isn't that bad. If done properly they will stand up to a power washer with no problem. That is how I get mine clean, you have to pressure wash them.

Wasn't too hard, went to a local garage and lifted it took the wheels off put some newspaper on the tires and went to town, haha. Some people game advice on this forum made it alot easier. overall just be cautious

I'm planning to do this this coming weekend, possibly the next. I have the high temp paint stuff that rustolium makes. Should I take that back in favor of the bed liner? I painted a set of old BMW rims at one point flat black and hated it. I re-coated them with a shiny black and it made a world of difference. I want to avoid the flat black look... with that, should I stick with the stuff I have to keep the gloss or change to the bedliner stuff? I haven't seen the bedliner in person so tough to make the call on my own.

Bed liner is a flat black with a light texture.

Sticking with the paint, then. I'll just prep really good. I have the spare tire already prepped but back on the Jeep. I'll take some pics after everything is complete.

flat black = win
gloss is for sports cars IMHO
They make special wheel paints....even semigloss as a compromise did it on my former car (a ricer) prep is the key... @aharper you really should re-prep spare, important that its done immediately prior to painting t o avoid contamination.
Thinkin of doing this again to tide me over till I can afford some cragars...

That's exactly why I did it. To tide me over and now I love the look. I get asked about them everywhere. My jeep is certainly a head turner, all the time driving down the road I see people fully turning in their seat just to look at my ride. Feels good.

Sooo.. rustoleum for the frame eh?? Able to withstand Angle Grinders you say... The attention to detail is amazing, and i'm about to swap a frame.. so everything is coming off. 3 cases please. The only thing that your jeep is missing is a "Terrible Towel".
pm me if you want one. (Steeler Nation Colors right there)

I have those same stock rims that were given to me at purchase so it would be really easy to do now as another set is on the jeep. I was wondering about the rivets also. Will keep an eye on this thread...

Poke it out from the inside. Use a screw driver handle or soothing similar and give it a good hit.

got started on this project today... its fairly easy. Did my spare first; just to get a hang of the spray can. Thats very important...




not sure if I should do the back side of the wheel too, maybe not. Will post pics once I am done with all 5

Question: I am not going to put the middle plastic JEEP logo back when I put the wheel on (can be seen in the second pic) is that going to be a problem

I'm thinking I want to do this, want black wheels, but don't have the cash right now. Everyone that has posted pics looks really good. Not sure if I want to go with the bed liner or a flat/satin paint. Like I said the pictures all look great, but nobody feels like it looks too cheap? Painting wheels always just makes me think of Honda Accord rice burners.

Okay, next nice day of weather I think I'll have to do it. My Jeep is silver w/ the matching fenders and I need some more contrast, so I think it must be done.

Quick question about the bed liner. I saw to clean it, people said a pressure washer works well. What about a high powered nozzle on the end of a hose? I'm just curious, not like it is a make it or break it deal. Thanks for all your help!

Yeah those work if you just go slow over everything. That's what I find myself using most the time. And of it starts to look dull you just hit it with another can!

Rustoleum Bedliner?

RUSTOLEUM??? This project is awesome. The pics look really good and it seemed to have turned out really well.

However... Rustoleum sucks for bedliner. It is obviously a very sturdy paint though. I think you need to be careful when you use the words interchangeably. Given, Rustoleum is definitely a giatn of paints and coatings, they are not really in the game of professional bedliners. It's just kind of an ego shot when they are compared to guys in the business of professional bedliners. Spray-lining a bedliner versus coating a rim, are very different. Here are some good DIY Kits for bedliners if that's what someone really wants.

What steps do I need to take before spraying the wheels? Cover tires? Clean the rim? anything else? I Guess I need to take the wheels off right?

Great job everyone. Top tip...lets air pressure out of the tires, put old playing cards around the rim to keep from having to tape around the rim.

(Pic is of an old Miata wheel I was working on)

Sorry to all the people that asked for pictures to be updated. I didn't see the messages after I sold my Jeep. Now I'm back with a CJ5! And Pictures!!!!!

I have been contemplating this for some time now and I finally did it today, painting my stock wheels with Bed liner.
Initially I was just going to paint the windows on the wheels and leave the face silver. This did not work so well, but I will include the pics anyway.

First, go to the store and buy 2 cans of rustoleum truck bed liner. Be sure that you do not grab 1 can of bed liner and 1 can of undercoating. I found them both in the same row. guess I should have verified I got the right thing, though.


Second, pull the spare off the jeep and bring it into your shop/garage/workspace.

Yes, the sheets have poka-dots on them. No, they are not my sheets. They are my girlfriend's sheets. (now my wife)


Third, Mask off the edges of the face and window area if you are going to paint the windows, so you don't sand the face.


Fourth, Sand the area to be painted, whether it be the whole wheel or the windows only. I used 200 grit sandpaper so it was not too smooth, but not too rough.


Fifth, Clean off the dust with some alcohol and a rag.


Sixth, if you are painting the windows, cover the opening with paper/tape.


Seventh, paint from the inside of the wheel, try to get in the corners as much as possible. Then let it dry for about 20 minutes. Peel off the tape/paper and then decide you should have just painted the whole wheel all along. At this time also realize that you sprayed with undercoating, not bed liner.




Eighth, take the wheel, or another one if you like that look, back inside and remove the center cap and wheel weight. Save these and mark their location with a little bit of paint or a sharpie. The weights can be popped off gently, but it takes some time. I took a wide standard screwdriver to the open point on the clip of the weight and pried them off. The cap just pushes out from behind.

Ninth, sand the whole entire surface of the wheel, including windows, and clean again.

Tenth, I placed small strips of masking tape around the wheel, right where the rubber meets the rim of the wheel to keep the tire from getting sprayed and them taped huge index cards to make the masked area larger, couldn't figure out how to do the "index card trick".


Eleventh, Begin spraying with the bed liner. I sprayed around the rim first, then did the windows, then the face areas. I found this worked the best. You need not do a very thick coat, and don't worry if it has a glossy finish in some areas because it will even out as it dries. Make sure to spray from over a foot away. Let the wheel dry for about 30 minutes.


Twelfth, While that wheel is drying, start on another a wheel.

Thirteenth, Touch up any areas on the wheel that need more bed liner on them.

Fifteenth, Take the wheel out to your jeep and put it on.

Sixteenth, have at least 2 beers and repeat until finished.

Here are my results:

Just the windows:


And the whole wheels:

For anyone who comes along and sees this, apparently Rustoleum changed their formula for the bed coating. It is now rubberizes and does not work well. It is now basically just plastidip. So if you see the can above, you are good to go.
