Painting Rubber

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Thinking about putting a couple rear ag tires half way into the ground, for playground equipment. Can i paint them? What would i use? A stain?

Power wash them John, maybe a rubberized paint, but definitely something that will not 1. rub off and 2. aggravate the skin.02 :wink:

Stain is used to absorb into wood. Not likely to happen with rubber. Too bad though, a nice light oak tire would look great in a playground. :D

Ditto. Stuff won't peel or come off. Did two tires in fall of 2009; still look good.

John, what color do you plan to paint them? A good paint store can tell you what is best to use.

Various colors. I did a google search, after i posted this, duh, should of went there first. Just used to asking the "boys" or shall we shall experts, their opinion first. The link i found said use an oil based paint/primer on cleaned tires. as the oil base will flex with the tire. then it said you could use any latex paint you wanted. So thats looks like what i will do. Find an oil based primer, clean them all good with acetone, prime em, and then paint em, probably go ahead and use an oil based top coat, red, white and blue is what i as thinking, since there will be twelve.
