the front and back racks turned out excelent, i recommend it to everyone who put anything on their racks, and it looks very very good. however, i do not say it would be a good idea to do it yourself on ur rims... when brushing this stuff on its like trying to control tar. i think it would make ur rims looks nasty. i also wouldnt imagine trying to prep (sand/rough up) rims would be an easy thing to do. i say just spray paint the rims... if and when it does chip off, respray it.

im using the herculiner, i dunno what kinda bed liner he was using. but it is VERY VERY thick, and i think in the stock rims it would get all stuck up the little holes and in the grove that goes around the rim. just think about driving through the peanut butter mud and how your rims looks after that. i think thats how it would look if u did bed liner on them. give it a try if you want to. but i do highly recommend it on the racks, i found the best way to do them is to use a paint brush (cheap one) and hang the racks from something. i hung them in my garage and put plastic down on the ground b/c it drips. i did 2 coats and its gonna hold up very good. after each the first coat clean off the brush with paint thinner the best you can or it will dry up into a solid block and u'll have to use a new one each time. WEAR GLOVES!! i used latex gloves. it will not wash off the skin, haha hope this makes ur bedlining experience better!

this got me thinking about painting and doing the wheels. there was a special paint that i used to paint the inside of my jeep with. this stuff loved rust and it dried hard. you couldn't chip it. i'll look it up tonight and see what it was. it would probably be good stuff on the wheels.

this stuff is called por-15, www.por15.com . por-15 is just painted on metal whether it has paint or rust on it. it aint cheap but it is what it advertises. ive had everything thrown against it in my jeep but doesn't crack.

yeah POR-15 is the best for rust. just paint it over rust and it seals the rust so it can't spread

i did the spray on approach

i did my racks with the duplicolor bedliner spray...

i sanded and cleaned and painted it on and it lasted almost 6 months before it started chipping off bit by bit.

i think i may try a different approach and paint it with rust resistant paint and tape them up with thick pipe wrap.

I actually just got done painting my stock rims with a kit you can get at advanced auto. it special wheel paint made for cars....i did two coats of that plus 2 coats of clear just for shine...came out really nice. I was actually suprised how good it was.
