4SouthernBrowns Just bought a JK this past weekend. I have upgraded rims, but if I had the standard set, this would have been a must. Cheap $ changes are the best.

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?

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?

ltsrapcon Looks Cool. I need to do that to my Dozer now.

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

i was thinking the same, post pics when you do it, i know i will leave the center jeep logo as is, but not sure about the rim or other accents might take a while. and gonna wait until its warmer out

jrohan07 Now to debadge or not?
01-24-2011 01:59 PM
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
01-24-2011 01:34 PM
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.

DakotaBuck How are the wheels holding up this winter?

I was thinking about getting these

But your options seems more budget friendly!

krutj 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)
11-18-2010 02:17 PM
Mr. Sinister Looks good!! I'm considering the same thing, only leaving the lip of the rim and the center cap silver.
11-18-2010 01:42 PM
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

none at all! just saw pics from other people and liked it. I went to menards and saw something similar but didn't get it. It might've turned out with the same result... beats me! From what I've read though it's the best spray on liner in the market, as far as ease goes at least.

Sweeeeet

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.

This looks good. Is there a reason you chose Duplicolor over say Rustoleum? I am going to do this and obiously want to use the best, most durable product. I want to see what just the spokes look like blacked out on the Sahara 18". Taping off is going to be a bitch but all black is too much for me.

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.
