I did the CASS thing the past couple of days. CASS was spot on, on what a PITA cover the rivets were. Up close you can see some bleeding on the rivet..from 5', looks perfect. Best 12 bucks spent.
Here's with them on the Jeep with new tires.

I used rustoleum spray on bedliner and it seems to be holding up well.

I know, right? They were in no way perfect, and I put about 4-6 hours of refinish work on them BEFORE I bedlined them. some fill, some grind, some buffing... all in a days work... lol!!!
The Rustoleum Bedliner works GREAT

|375Ranger||What can I do to chrome rims? I want to paint a set for my truck. Chrome and winter mtn. roads don't mix, hence flat black. Any ideas?|

|Will George||i have left over herculiner from when i lined my interior... would that work?|
|02-18-2012 08:33 PM|

|recon1jcm||check out Plasti Dip coat on (youtube) it's a good looking fix at a cheap cost. Paint shops want 75 -100 bucks per rim to powder coat|

Desert Sand Pearlcoat Wheels ?
Does anyone have a picture of wheels painted Desert Sand Pearlcoat preferably on a Jeep of the same color?
I am dechroming my Jeep and think body colored wheels would look better than silver.
Thanks for the help.

Just an idea, but several threads on people plasti-dipping their rims. I will be doing it soon. Goes on easy, and can be removed if you don't like it. People state it holds up for years with out having to be touched up.

|Salman||i did the same thing with my 98 sahara,, sand it down,, use a primer and black rustoleum,, Looks PERFECT!|
|02-17-2012 11:21 AM|
|CASS||it probably took like 5-6 hours just prepping them for paint, i cant say for sure cuz i did it over a course of a couple days, definitely frustrating, expect a screwdriver to go flying across the garage once or twice lol but like i said, definitely worth it|

|Moose-Island||A few hours nit-picking work, and then years of the happy satisfaction of having done things right. It looks great !|

|CASS||ive also got a green tj and painted my wheels last summer. scuff them up first with light-grit sandpaper, put 1-2 coats of primer and i did about 4-5 coats of rustoleum flat black and it turned out great. now i am a big fan of the bead-lock look so if you want them to look REALLY good and spend a lot more time on them i put painters tape over each little bead-lock on the aluminum wheels, crimped them close with a screw driver and cut them out with a razor. it will put you through hell doing over 100 little bead-locks but dams does it look good. when i get knicks in the wheel i either sharpie it if its small enough or just wash the wheel and respray it in that spot and it looks fine.|

|Knowledge97||I just did my aluminum wheels a couple of weeks ago, and I think they turned out good. Get some 220-400 grit wet/dry sand paper, some self-etching primer that works with aluminum, and whatever paint you like. I used rustoleum spray on bedliner and it seems to be holding up well.|
|02-16-2012 11:11 PM|
|orbar18||either use a sort of undercoat it works great and last and has some texture to it, plasti dip is great for rims... check out my thread i am actually flatt black plasti dipping my whole car now. but the undercoat works great on rims dont go with glossy spray paint though it just looks bad|
