If i bed line my rims will it throw off the balance
 
I am going to paint my rims, and i reall like the way duplicolor spray on bedliner looks on rims, but i was wondering if it would throw them off balance. Any advice?

If its all sprayed evenly, the balance should be the same.

It most likely will and unless you run dynabeads they are gonna be a ***** to balance with traditional weights. Bedlining wheels is probably something you should skip.

Ever thought of how tough it's going to be to clean those rims?

i bet its going to be nearly impossible to balance. you're adding a lot of weight for no reason. don't do it.

that spray on bedliner weighs nothing. I dont think it would be an issue unless you're COATING it.

A friend of mine did his. Said it was the WORST thing he ever did to the JEEP. He sanded the rims down so it would stick to the bare metal. It did for about a year then started to flake off. Now some of it won't even come off, looks like crap. He went out and bought new rims :shhh:

ok does anybody recommend a paint that i should use. I either want to go black or gun metal gray, i feel that will go well with the color of my jeep.

Are they steel or aluminum?

aluminum

Bad idea. They wont balance out and you adding un-needed unsprung weight. Do paint or powdercoat or anodizing.

I don't suggest doing this, but to say it's going to add unsprung weight is a bit ridiculous. Your only looking At maybe 3-4 ounces a wheel , at the most.

and wheels are balanced within 0.25 oz or less typically...if the thickness isn't perfectly even you'll never get the wheels to balance right.
