Sure it can be done, but if you just want them to be black you should think about getting them powdercoated.

I think Rhino Lining would give you trouble when you bal the wheels powder coating is the way to go.

spray paint...spray paint.



Looks good on stock wheels, and easy to fix scratches. Bedliner would be excessive for this job. My exterior and interior is bedlined and if the wheels were too it would just be way too much.

X-2 Spray Paint. I have done numerous sets of rims with rattlecan, and they turned out GREAT. And to clean them, get the foaming tire cleaner.

Rhino lining them I would think it would give you the death wabble from hell, and you would put alot more stress on your axles and everything cause it would add unneeded weight. Just my

it wont be as bad as they say for causing to be out of ballance. Just the min they put a tire on it will screw it up big time. Every time you rub something it has a very strong chance of ripping off. I would check around for a good powder and ask them how much to do them.
I took a set of rims to get powder coated wrinkle finish black and it was about 15 per wheel plus tax.

I'd stick with spray paint as well. I'm planning to try some Duplicolor wheel paint this spring. I read in another thread that the graphite color looks very nice.

Don't even bother with sandblasting. If you use enough elbow grease or a wire wheel on a drill, you can get the majority of the crap off the wheel.

Rustoleum rusty metal primer and 3 coats of Professional Flat Black did the trick. 5 years later, I haven't had to retouch them except to cover up where the wheelweights used to be.

I agree with Exparrot, a little elbow grease, primer, and paint.

Good on you for searching and finding a thread that has what you're needing.

I'm assuming you were refering to this?.....

If so there's no such thing as "X-2" paint. What he was saying was in reference to.....

As in "I'll second that opinion" = X's 2.

So the long and short of it is, they were simply saying to buy cheap rattle can spray paint to paint the wheels, because #1 it's cheap, #2 it's easy to touch up especially if you play in the rocks.
