spray bedliner on trailer wheels?

6 posts in this topic

I'm almost done sprucing up my new trailer. the last thing on the list are the wheels. they are the white painted type. they are peeling and pretty rusty. Instead of painting them, I was thinking I'd have some bedliner sprayed on them......does anyone see a problem doing this? If they end up out of balance too far, I'll just balance them. this way, the wheels will stay nice and sharp with no maintainance. it's an aluma trailer, that gets used occasionally, with most use being in the winter for ice fishing..... I have a friend who does the bedliners and he will do it relatively cheaply for me.... thoughts???

I would think they might be hard to balance. Be careful not to get a build up under the lugs or where they go against the hubs. The cheap paint they put on from the factory usually has no primer under it. I would sandblast them and spray on a good primer and several good coats of enamel or have them powder coated.

I sprayed just about every thing, and I owned all my own stuff too. I sprayed arma coatings. But you will nock them way out of alinement. I would just paint them. I did it to my rim's and one year latter I had to by knew rims.

If anything, sand blast and Powder coat paint them, the balancing issue will pop up and likely ruin the tires due to hopping on the bed liner option.

Painting or just replacing them with new rims and tires may be the most cost effective plan in the long run. If the tires are near wear replacement levels, replacement with a rim/tire combo new would be my preference.

Thanks guys, I gotta tell ya, I'm bummed. I was pretty stoked about my idea!! the tires have tons of life left in them, the tread is almost like new so I don't want to ruin them. thanks for all the advise.

i shot my rusty wheelhouse rims with some rustoleum rust primer and white gloss paint to get by for now. I'll buy new rims and tires when the time comes. $10 in spray paint, apply once a year or so and they look new.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need

    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
