Fresh paint on the older db's rims really spruced it up.


P.S. I know the Big 5 directional wheel is facing the wrong way.

Tip-o-the-day, or "Painting Wheels with Tires the Easy Way."

 

 

Slather up the tire with dishwasher soap.  Paint rim.  Brush off the overspray from the tire with a stiff (brass bristle) brush.  Done. Soap will not hurt the tire.

I've done the same thing with some old brake fluid I had laying around. It's good for the rubber and looks nice after you rub the paint off when your done.

But brake fluid eats paint.
