I'm looking for advice on painting my stock rims. Plastic dip or bed liner spray paint? I live in Rhode Island, so winter and road salt are my biggest fears for the rims. I'm also kicking around the idea of using the bed liner spray for underneath my jeep. If anybody has used either and has pics , this new jeep owner would appreciate it.

I have painted other wheels and I usually sand off the clear coat and get some black wheel paint from auto parts store and put 4 to 5 coats on and then hit it with some clear coat paint and looks like factory and hold up well

I picked up a pair of stock wheels from someone that had upgraded. I scuffed them with a Scotch Brite pad and then painted them with single stage Nason. It is a cheaper line of Dupont. I went single stage because its all color and if you scratch it, wet sand it and buff it back out or scuff it and shoot it with a touch up gun. Holds up pretty well. I used the same stuff on our rock sliders.

Surf Youtube for a while and you'll find a lot of tutorials and info on a lot of methods. I just got a '98 Tacoma and the wheels are dirty and the clear coat is separating in places. I haven't decided what Im going to do yet. Im thinking I would just like to have them sandblasted and clear coated via paint, or powder coat.

I got another wheel question. SPACERS. Are all brands created equal? Anybody have a certain brand they won't use?
I have the spydertrax 1.5" wheel spacers on my JK. They are the bolt-on type and the only wheel spacers I have (or would ever) use. The ones that just slide-on are frowned upon and my local tire shop won't touch them.

I live in mass and i got like a good 3 years out of the plastidip when i did the rims on my ranger. i'm honestly surprised it held up through last years snow.
