painting bumpers and other parts with bed liner

Well I went ahead and started painting parts on the truck. I pulled the rear bumper off and painted it with the dupli-color bed liner paint. If everything looks good and dry in the morning I will mount it back up and post some pics of the process. Next I will be going on to my front bumper. And eventually I want to black everything out. Do you guys think it would look good if I did my grill with the same paint? I was also considering doing my wheels and if they turn out bad I will just get them powder coated. Here are some pics with truck as is. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

I would leave the wheels chrome. Red wheels would make it look like a clown truck.

I painted my grill wit the same paint, but it started chipping after a while, and I ended up repainting it with krylon..Granted when I did It I only used 2 coats of primer, and 2 coats of paint.

No I would paint the wheels with bed-liner or get them powder coated black. I agree it would look terrible with red wheels.

i have had mine painted for over a year now... only reason it chipped was because of rocks... but it was very minimal and all i did was patch it up....
