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.

|JT.Long||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?|

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.

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!

|Wazzu||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.|

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

|JerkyBoy||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...|

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)

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...

|aharper||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.|
