Duplicolor Rattlecan "Bed Armor" vs "Bed Coating" for wheels

I have seen a few people using bed liner on their wheels. Until I can grab a wheel/tire combo, I'll be doing the same rattlecan bed liner to black out my wheels.

I've seen the "Rustoleum" vs "Duplicolor" threads - I've decided on Duplicolor since I've seen more positive reviews. But which version of the product are people using on their wheels?

Bed Coating?
or
Bed Armor?

Which stock wheels do you have?

I feel like the Bed Armor is going to have too much texture to be honest.

So my vote would be for the Bed Coating... (or PlastiDip, but you didn't ask about that)

But if you did the Bed Armor, I bet it would look "unique".

I personally hate that bed armor crap. I did the ENTIRE inside of my h2 with it. (Except the floor pans, I used monstaliner.) it sucks. Soft and comes off.

If you want to do it right and never do it again, monstaliner is the way to go. Raptor liner would be my second choice. If you want to do it on the cheap, then I would use herculiner or the rustoleum stuff. I also wouldn't spray it, I'd paint it on.

I can't stress enough the amount of disappointment I have in that bed armor.

I used the Duplicolor Bed Armour on my Metal Cloak fenders, worst junk I've ever used, I ended up sanding them down which was a pain as the stuff was so soft it just clogged the sandpaper (I should have sand blasted them)

I ended up buying some bedliner from Walmart (Canada) It was EZ Liner from Dominion Sure Seal Ltd. Worked great but I don't know if it's available in the US.

(I actually called up Duplicolor and complained about it, they didn't seem to surprised either, they refunded my money as the store wouldn't refund on used cans)
