|Hodg||New here. Just bought a JK Unlimited and I'm thinking about trying this. Its been 2 years since the last post on this thread. Any long term problems from painting the wheels?|
|08-24-2012 10:45 PM|
Thats what I figured. I realize this with paint, but what about the truck bed liner being used in this thread?
I just really hate those clip on weights. I didn't want to paint over them. Do you or anyone know if it's possible for them to clip the weight to the back of the wheel instead of the front?
last question, (googled but could find the info I was looking) Could you do the bed liner on just the face of the wheel and a portion of the inside of the wheel to allow the sticky weight to have metal to stick too?

|mrbullitt||How do sticky weights hold up? Well they stay stuck to the inside in the rim. Because I'll pop off the outside weight, paint and then have them rebalanced with sticky weights instead of those clip ons.|

|Nev730||Blacked out looks great only thing have anyone had to change their tires?? If so how did the paint hold?|

Might i add what was the process you took, what number sandpaper, how many coats of each spray and what kind. just so we all can make them last as long as you did, thanks

Anyone out there that've had the bedliner mod done for a year or more???

|Dbar71||I did mine at the end of sept. No problems so far. Holding up well here in Illinois with snow and salt. I also have power washed them a few times, no flaking.|

|Se7endust1||Mine are holding up great in the arctic tundra of ND|

|Trunz150||I have the red rock crystal color also, and black wheels looks great, anyone think this will hold up while wheeling in snow and sand and dirt? Bc i would love to do that to the wheels just dont wanna have to redo it every weekend after wheeling|

|jrohan07||I was able to paint my rims black this weekend. Sanded with brillo pad to scuff the wheel, used Rustoleum PRIMER 2 coats, then Rustoleum High Performance Wheel paint, 2 coats, then Rustoleum clear coat. Turned out very nice but wish I had not painted the center cap and the lug nuts black to offset all that black...does look good with Red Rock Crystal Pearl.|

How are the wheels holding up this winter?
I was thinking about getting these
But your options seems more budget friendly!

I've been wanting to do this for awhile. Problem is my rims are so scratched up from wheeling that I'm seriously wondering how well it will hold up to the rocks.
What did you do about your weights?
|11-18-2010 04:26 PM|
Much better than the stock alloy look....nice job
When I was using rattle can bedliner, I noticed that the nozzle kinda gunked up, causing the bigger drops that you got. I kept wiping it off and it helped.(had the beers too)

|Mr. Sinister||Looks good!! I'm considering the same thing, only leaving the lip of the rim and the center cap silver.|

|Se7endust1||Just in case anyone stumbles across this thread looking for info on this type of project, I made a 280 mile road trip yesterday with zero wheel balancing issues. Didn't have any wobbles or shakes anywhere between lower speeds and 75 mph. I'd imagine as long as you do your best to put the coats on equally, you shouldn't have any problems (unless preexisting) with this. Carry on|

Man Those look great!!!

|Mr Hobbit||Looks great. I wonder how they'd hold up in Colorado with all the stones they put on the roads during the winter.|
|11-13-2010 08:28 AM|
I am going to do it mainly because mine are scarred up all over with rock rash, and I like the looks, and I don't want to spend big money on new rims yet.
I have been running spacers for a couple of years on and off road in all conditions, except for the expense I know of no draw backs what so ever. Last summer I upgraded to 295/65/18 Duratrac and the spacers allowed no rubbing. Without spacers there was a little rubbing on the swaybar, not bad really but the Duratracs only ended up only being 32" x 11.5".

|Dbar71||Sweet. I was thinking of powder coating mine black but this looks great. Plus won't have to take tires off rims to do it. Looks great.|
|11-13-2010 07:18 AM|
|jkjeeper06||I love the look of that especially on your black jeep. Do you think it would look good on my steel wheels? Steel wheels tend to rust so a nice coating would help. Has anyone put black rims on red rock crystal? Does it look good?|
