I never said I know all. I'm sharing what a body shop suggested to me. You were the one who made a smart *** comment to start with. Maybe your trolling. I dont know? You made a statement about how you cant use self etching primer on aluminum. I posted a product that was designed for that purpose.

A person told you that stuff works, And your going to believe them? What you posted was aluminum house siding primer. Last i checked you dont paint a house with automotive paint and vice versa. A house sits, Different paint is used. Would you paint a car with dutch boy if they told you it worked?

I have been around auto body and paint my whole life and we have never used home improvement chemicals and paints on vehicles. You dont mix and match chemicals, Thats what screws up most painted items.
But then again, This is a thread about bedlineing wheels. Thats something you would have to do at home with whatever you can get, As the vast majority of people wouldn't do so and thats why theres no need for automotive aluminum etch prime.
That and we both looked at it different and replied different, But in the end who cares. Theres more than one way to do it, And everyone has an opinion

Here you go boss:

Amazon.com: SEM Paints (SEM39683) Self Etching Primer - Gray: Home Improvement

Or here:

I can see where it would be helpful, But if you sandblast an aluminum wheel, It goes porous and regular primer can be used or straight to paint after wiped down with solvent. Never failed yet and never any touch ups needed. But no reason to waste extra money on wheels that will see mud and rocks off road. Keeping the corrosion protected is the best thing you could do. To each his own

You do realize the product I linked is for autobody applications right? The description on Amazon is wrong. SEM does not make Home products. Just automotive and Aerospace.

here is the old label:
SEM Paints 39693 Self Etching Primer, Green, Aerosol

and here it is in the new labeled cans right out of there autobody catalog:

Yeah i read through the site didn't go to amazon. Never herd of the company but sounds decent and the product would work. Never said "this" sem product wouldn't.
I'm saying its not needed and pointed out regular run of the mill would have bad effects. You are better off scuffing and rattle caning. You can pay high dollar at a shop to base/clear them, But the same process is used. Just over priced paint and shot out of a gun. Same looks after a couple runs.
No pun intended, I understand you clearly. This stuff will work on galvanized and stainless, I might look into it myself. But no reason to drag it out any further. Good luck

MOPAR!
