Rock Chips

So is it me or do those small rock chips by your tires drive you crazy too... Ive tried the touch up paint you buy at Wallmart, but the chips just keep coming back. Im about to trade my wide, MotoMetals in for some stock wheels. I hope that solves my problem. Anyone else having rock chip problems with stock wheels?

they don't even carry my color paint in the touch up stuff. I have Dark Stone Metallic and there were so few of them they decide to just tell you use the charcoal gray metallic - doh! . not even close to matching

is it really noticeable? I was thinking about getting some offset wheels to fit some 37s. Is it that bad or are you just frustrated?

Granted I'm not drivin a new truck...

But I'm about to rhino line/linex the bottom 8" or so down both sides of the truck. Think that'll take care of the rock chips.

My truck is a Sport model so it has all painted bumper grille, etc.

My front bumper looks like it has been shot about 10 times with a 12 gauge. Pure Crap!

I"m thinking about either having them painted and putting that clear 3M tape over them, or trading them for some chrome bumpers.

I feel your pain bro.

Have to agree with the Rhino liner/LineX on the lower portions all the way down the side.

Looks good, tough as nails and should do the trick.

Most of the 4x4' around here that are running anything wider than stock are using it and no problems.

What about a taller rather than wider tire?

I have a nice big set of duraflaps on my truck. I run toyo mts on my stock wheels and have been for the past year and I have no rock chips. Now my 96 I had tires that stuck a ways out and regular A/Ts with no mudflaps...rock chips all over the fricken thing. Once I put my BMFs on with another set of Toyo m/ts, we will see if it still chips, but I think the big mudflaps help a lot.
