Did you prep them well enough? I've never heard of anyone doing this..I can't imagine it'll make balancing any easier.

Quite a few have used the Dulplicolor liner and had great results, myself included. Preps is the key. You'll never get enough liner on there to affect balance. (If you did, you've really got no business painting anything, ever...) The Duplicolor doesn't really go on that heavy. It's more like a slightly thick paint with only the slightest texture depending on your spray techniques.

I did a whole car in that stuff! lol It is hella-durable, but as said before, prep is absolutely paramount. It doesn't like hard edges, so if you masked anything off, it'll probably start flaking at the masked edge. But if your prep is solid, that stuff is fanstastic!

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

I don't see bedliner spray throwing the wheels out of balance did my cladding with it and it's not that thick...

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