Default Paint my rims black?

Very true but I think you would notice scratches in most paint
Especially anything highlighted lol

I like the look of all the black in these pics especially like the custom mud flaps !!





What you think ?
Or what other color besides black that would suit my car
Lol but nothing crazy

Yes looks great for me as well. Black fits very good there.and lower plastics looks great. Im thinking if i would do rims black then those plastics maybe do black as well.

Maybe use something tougher like roll-on bed liner ?

Well my stock rims are black once I sand them back from silver so Iím just going to go normal black over them and see how it goes but if they scratch up heaps Iíll look into something more robust like bed liner
Thanks for the idea

if you just paint them yourself they will scratch sure , with spray can it would be worse then with brush. and i would use some better paint for better holding on like antirust paint or something like that. i was using some antirust 3 in 1 paint on really bad rusty metal and they holding really well. even if you will use bed liner first you need to take care of rust put some layer of antirust stuff first.
that bed liner looks really well on rims

i think this guy was using rust oleum bed liner

thats some good idea for me too.

Makes a lot of sense to protect from rust
Something I didnít think of yet
Happy I didnít rush into it
So that picture of the wheel is bedliner ?
Looks mint
I like it

well there are diff sorts of those protective layers as bed liner so ones are better then others. some scratching really easy too , so i think if you choose right one , its becoming so hard no matter on what surface you will paint it. you can even put it on clothes and then you have like armor on top. haha
some other stuff called Line X they say its making anything indestructible as in this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lfd7_p4SVBU

i mean thats just look hardcore. thats what we would need as protection no ?
But then with all that good stuff comes other side. Imagine if you spray this on something that begin to rust under that layer. And tou will never see that rust under it it will just eat metal unde and on top it will look good still

i like this idea a lot
thanks duncanm !!

Bedliner won't cover up rust though, it bubbles through in about 2 weeks apparently so still need to treat the rust before you apply bedliner, i don't have any rust so im good

Going off topic again, but I'm thinking of painting all the black plastic on mine using bedliner.
Panel beater/spray painter insists it will come off though due to the oils in the plastic, and I'd be better off just hitting it with a hair dryer to bring back the colour.

Not a bad idea for the rims though!
