First time using bedliner on wheels (pics)

So I read the "bedline your wheels" threads and had a set that came with the tires I just bought. Well, I had to try it. I picked up this set of wheels, maybe Alcoa wheels, and tires for $250. Tires have less than 200 miles on them. 31/10.2/15 set of 5. So I bedlined them and left the lips and centers polished aluminum. I think they look good and the tires really help fill up the wheel wells. If anyone needs any tips, these came out pretty good in my opinion. I also bedlined my full door rusty chrome handles. When my wife saw those she was actually impressed. Showing some before and after pics..

Gresat job looks like factory rims, did you have to do any prep such as sanding or did you just spray them? I have been thinking of finding a set of 31 mudders and rims as and extra for mine and was wanting to do the same as you with the bedliner spray.. Again great job.

It was easy and pretty fun. I taped the lips of and then sanded the part I wanted to paint with 180 grit paper. I then wiped the part I sanded with acetone on a rag. Then sprayed three coats of bedliner on. Waiting about 3 minutes in between coats. Good luck with your's. It was easy and turned out great.

What kind of bedliner did you use?

Rustoleum truck bed liner, not the undercoating stuff. Went on easy and has a great looking durable finish
