    All you need to do is scuff up the surface, wipe down with a rag with some paint thinner then repaint. No need to primer again if no bare metal is showing. We do it everyday here at my work. We have some customers that spec us to paint over the powder for extra coverage.

    I've been spraying the scuff marks on my rails using VHT rollbar.chasis satin black, self priming.

    Only prep I do is wash, unless it's chipped to the metal and then i'll use a small wire wheel in a drill to get the rust off

    Thanks to all for the comments. Seems like there is some consensus to give the rattle can a shot. I think I'll go in that direction and see what happens. If the first one looks like crap then I'll just get them all recoated.

    Prep in what way (besides light sanding and etch primer)?

    What he said.
    It sounds like you want a good quality finish on them however. So don’t buy Home Depot spray paint. Go to an actual paint supply store that mix automotive finishes and get a base coat and a clear coat in spray cans. It’s more expensive but it’s completely different then “rattle can” and if you want you can match your paint code perfectly.

    Painting powder coat

    So after all that, I opened the box and the “rash” rings that come with the wheels are thick plastic, not powder coat. Their true beadlock ring is extra. So, I scuffed the plastic, cleaned it, and I’ll see how it paints up.

    Wait they’re plastic? Will that even be strong enough to hold 30psi? This confuses me.

    Those are fake rings. The tire mounts to a bead, like a normal wheel, then the ring is for looks.

    Some wheels like this are dual use, and can be used with a real ring and the bead on the outside to make it a true beadlock

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
