Line the tubs with a second layer of aluminum or galvinized steel sheet. Cut a piece wide enough to cover the tread pattern and then silicone or rivet the liner in place. Leave a 1/4" air gap between the inner and outer as a buffer for stone dings.
Galvinized works well for this as it is very cheap from an HVAC place and it is a bit tougher then the aluminum.

Summit has them.

I would use the steel ones. The aluminum ones will dent from every little rock that hits them. Just my 2 cents. Its your car build it the way ya want to.
