Ordered the Vredestein V61's for the JD 318 today. They are suppose to arrive Friday if all goes well. Just in time for my B-day.

I guess I better get going on painting the rims.

Have fun mounting those, they will resist your efforts to give them a home on a rim.

Pulled the wheels off the 318 and demounted the tires. The tires came off the rims really easy. Found some snot in there, but the inside looks good after a rinse. Popped the rim in my E-tank to strip it and get ready for paint.

Pulled the first wheel out of the E-tank and hosed it off. Followed that with the blast cabinet. Need to finish up straightening around the rim edge in a few spots and then I will hit them with OSPHO.

They look to be in good shape!

Do you have pictures of how your e tank is set up?

The tank is approx. 250-275 gallons with the top cut out. Once its filled we add the sodium carbonate that we buy at a pool supply outfit. We use our regular battery charger on the 10 amp setting. This tank is big enough to put our 38" tractor rims in it.

Thanks for show me what you used!  I was thinking of using the same type of tank!

I finished straightening the bead lip. Then touched it up with a small grinding disc in my Die grinder and applied OSPHO.
