Blocked up the rear and removed the 24" rear wheels on my 2414 PK ...also went ahead and removed the centers  from the rims. Of course the rims have a silvery finish that I suspect is not just paint....I tried a light brush in a drill motor to remove the light rust and tried a 3m wheel too.....both worked a little but still showed a silvery finish beyond the rust. I don`t see anyway to do this because the lugs for the bolts are really rusty and getting around them with wire wheel is not going to look good at all even if they are cleaner.

I`m thinking about sand blaster but even then I`m not sure they would hold paint if it is some sort of galvanize type of coating

I know somebody out there has some knowledge on this....would appreciate any help !!

They could be an anodized finish.

They could be an anodized finish.

Only if they are aluminum. They're probably electro-galvanized (clear zinc).

    I said I work on them. I never said I fix them!

There is a paint out there that will work fine for those wheels.  Fixall all purpose spray enamel.  It's rust resistant and the color is 1307 aluminum metallic.  This is what I used to use.

Blast and Case/IH silver. Has another name for silver, be darned I can recall now! Sprays good, dries fast, stays on and shines, no dulling. Only PK wheels I know not painted were on Plasticking Kings, powder coat I believe.
