One question the tool that is screw on the valve stem there is one of those in the tools that my dad had. That is the first one of them I have seen outside of the one in his tools. Do you know are these still available or are they just an old tool that you need to be in the right place to find them. The use of cardboard is an idea I will try to remember the next time I paint some wheels.

Thank You

The valve tool is still available, may have to go to NAPA to find one. I have 3 and love them.

It's a valve core tool. All parts houses have them--NAPA, Carquest, O'Reilly's, Advance, all of them. Look for a blister pack where the valve stems and cores are hanging. Tractor Supply has them, too. I keep one with extra cores and steel caps in my pickup. They come in very handy. Especially when airing down for driving on the beach.

Another possibility for painting rims is to let the air out, put the wheel (tire & all) in a plastic bag, cut out for the rim & re-air the tire.  When done painting, let the air down & pull the bag off.

Probably as well as any other paint. I have had the Silver not show that much 'hammer' to it.

I read some reviews that said brushing worked better as far as the effect . They also have something called RUST STRIPPER which sounds too good to be true lol

I have had real good luck with the Rust Reformer as a first coat on very rusted metal. Be sure to let it set for 24 hrs. before overcoating that. After the 24 hrs, you can rough it up and prime/paint over it. I've been using the self etching primer with good results.
