New tires mounted (pics for Dan)

Recommended Posts

Nick
Bought a spare pair of rims from Dan on his trip east last January. The tires were shot and had a lot of rust on the rims. What made the rust worse was letting them sit outside for almost a year before working on them, So I had a lot of prep work to do. Finally got them cleaned up and painted and had my friend Tony mount my Carlisle Tru-Power Ags that I bought from rustybore on eBay yesterday on his pneumatic tire machine that he has in his shed. Got to still do some touch ups on the paint and then I will mount them on the tractor. Here is some before & after pictures.

Those look nice..I didn't bother to paint my wheels when I put my new lugs on a few weeks back..I wanted to but at that time it was way to cold to try to paint..Of coarse as soon as I got them mounted and loaded with WW fluid it would warm up to almost 60 the other day,LOL What kind/color of paint did you use?

I recently bought some rims in the Classified's and prepped and painted them and put Carlisle ag's on the rear, The paint is Dupli-color's Wimbledon White. Here's a before picture: [img]/club2/attach/RobS/wheels.JPG[/img] Here's an after picture: [img]/club2/attach/RobS/268-6813_IMG.jpg[/img] BTW, one of the front tires are mounted in the wrong direction [:0], not quite as noticeable as if it were a rear one!
