Bed-Line Wheels

I saw a thread on another forum about bed-lining wheels. Has anyone done this? It seems that doing such a thing would cause a imbalance in your wheels immediately but maybe I'm wrong.

These are off of the thread I was talking about. I like the textured look and might have to do this on my break in a couple of weeks.

Forgot to mention this is a spray bed-line that you can purchase rather than the roll on. I know I'm stating the obvious but I'd hate to be the reason someone screwed up their wheels.

Those look pretty good, I dont like how close the rim is to the outside, I like deep rims. But if you want black and dont plan on getting new rims anytime soon I think it would be a good investment.

Yeah I'd rather spend money on new tires and a lift rather than wheels. This seems to be a good option. Ill post a how-to once I go about doing this.

Yes.. I can't seem to figure out which grit he used to sand them. Any suggestions?

I would use a scotchbrite pad. They get into corners better than sandpaper.

If the clear is intact, then a fairly fine grit should be adequate, you just need to give the surface some "tooth" to aid with adherence. Clean them well before sanding, to remove any waxy residue, so you don't push it further into the surface, then clean them after scuffing, and spray away....

there is a write up on WF that tells you how to paint wheels w/o removing the tires.

Yeah, dont remove the tires. Just makes sure to mask off the tire, and other areas near from paint spray.

I think I may do 1 at a time starting with the spare and rotating it until they are finished. I'd like to hit the insides of the wheel as well.

Wonder how long it will take to realize that you can't keep them clean! The texture will hold mud and you will have to SCRUB everytime they get mud on them. Does look pretty bad ass tho.

I think a good pressure washer might work well on it. I'm still thinking about just using paint but I like the idea of the liner on them as well. Pretty sure I'd be the only one in my area with the bed-lined wheels

And a pressure washer will take spray paint right off. (ya I know it's not spray paint but it'll come off just the same)

Well I'm not sure about that. I have pressure washed every bed liner I have owned (about 4) and not one has yet to be effected by pressure washing. I would ask if anyone has experience with it on wheels but I think I'm pioneering here.

If it were me, I'd pick up a wheel at the boneyard and test out all the pros and cons, before dinking up my good wheels..... Just sayin'... Maintenance could be an issue. Others have done it, but I don't know their opinions on whether they'd do it again or not...

Noob question.....
I've read lots of threads about painting wheels.
All explain the need to prep the surface to hold the new coating.
Most talk about sand-paper, scotchbrite pads, or even sand/bead-blasting.
Has anyone ever tried sulphuric acid to etch the surface? Available at any auto-parts store.
Seems like it should be easy.
Thoughts???

Sand paper is a lot more user friendly than sulfuric acid.... And I'm pretty sure you'd need to be down to bare metal for that to work. All you need to do is give the current surface some tooth for the paint to grab. Alloys (particularly factory wheels) are clear coated, so you just gotta rough up the clear...

The pictures I posted were from a guy who did it about a year ago. As soon as he lets me know how everything is going I will let everyone else know as well I'm not going to do all 4 at once regardless if his went perfect. 1 at a time to be safe.
