Wheel Repair and Paint Tip

Postby Stanton » Thu Apr 23, 2015 6:44 am

My #100 Manure Spreader needed tires. When dismounted I could see how much deterioration and rust there'd been; mainly around the valve stems. Decided to spot patch the wheels and get new tires and tubes. First thing was to cut the rusty places out and weld a new piece in:

The other wheel wasn't as bad:

After drilling new valve stem holes, got them primed and ready to mount tires and tubes. Since I was having a local tire shop do the mounting, I decided to paint the wheels after the new tires were in place. This meant running the risk of getting wheel paint on my new tires. So my wife suggested using contact or shelf paper. It's got a low adhesive and is vinyl in texture giving it strength. Here's how it turned out:

Lay it over the tire/wheel, then use a knife to trim the contact paper around the wheel. I noticed the paper stuck to the tire, but barely. And you have to cut in such a way to allow a little excess so you can stuff it down between the tire and wheel.

After shooting some paint:

Finished tire and wheel. Turned out nice:

Hope this contact paper tip helps. It could be used on a variety of things where you need to protect surrounding area where you're painting. BTW, one $2.99 roll did both wheels/tires.

Did you deflate the tires to get the paper so neatly under the lip of the rim? Nice job!!

No. I tried to cut the paper on the generous side of the wheel rim, then pushed/tucked it down behind the lip. Seemed to work okay.

Nope, it's Ace Hardware Rust Stop Almond Gloss. Good stuff.

Same brand as the International Blue Gloss:
