what is the best way to shield the tires when painting rims with tires mounted?

I think that's what I'm going to do. Masking seems unavoidable either way, so that makes sense.

Yes, but aren't you still going to have to do some painting after you've worked the rims over with iron tools putting them back on?

Aren't you going to have to do touchup on every tractor after reassembly?

The other thing you could do is paint the inside of the rims, mount the tires, then mask them off, and paint the outsides, then air them up. Everything will have paint and very little touchup.

I do the same, tape around the rim and follow with painter's plastic you can get at Home Depot. It comes in rolls and is designed for masking off windows and such. the benefit over paper is that it clings to the tire making it easier to handle. Save some time and buy their despenser. It applies the tape on the edge as you pull off the plastic or paper.

Isn't there stuff that you can spray on the wheels to keep the paint from sticking?

We use a little thinner on a rag to touch them up if we get some overspray.

I put on masking tape like Steve says, and then cut a piece of cardboard with an arc the same as the rim, and move it around the tire as I spray.

I just go around the rim with masking tape working it behind the rim with a putty knife. Then I apply paper to cover the rest.
