Anyone ever spray their wheels with bedliner?

Picked up a set of 03 Rubi wheels for pretty cheap because they're decently scratched up, which is what I wanted. I was originally planning on blasting and powder coating them, but then I started thinking a textured look might be kinda cool and possibly even easier to maintain. I'm gonna spray my tub with the U-Pol Raptor line in black and might get an extra bottle for the wheels. Anyone tried it? If so could you throw in a picture?

I wouldn't do it. The extra weight of the bed liner might cause balancing issues. It would also hamper using balance weights on the lip. The second you hit the wheel on a rock, it's just going to peel the liner off too. I'd just stick with paint.

Good stuff thanks for the input. I still think a textured look could be cool but didn't bring into account the balancing issues. I'll stick to powder coating em

Hey I'm doing the bedliner spray to a set of wheels this weekend anybody here still run wheels with the bedliner?

I don't see bedliner spray throwing the wheels out of balance any more than plasti-dipped wheels...

What did y'all think about the wheels after you did it? anybody?

Plasti dip is way lighter than bed liner. It is super tough and comes right off. I plasti dipped my front quarter panels and it worked well.
