I used electrolysis. That method works great if you are busy, but patient. Then as CNKS stated I used epoxy primer and top coated with PPG modified acrlylic enamal. To store the parts without rusting prior to painting I used Picklex. Here it is w/o decals.

Do what CNKS and Dean suggested. I should've done that on my Sears lawn trailer when I bought it 40 years ago. I have wheel weights made from armor plate that were painted with acid primer in 1972. I never top coated them and they had very little rust when I painted them in 2010. I had to put tubes in the tires on the trailer since the rims had pin holes. Hal

Don't even THINK of powder coat on wheel rims, unless you plan to never mount tires on them or you plan to always keep it indoors. Any little scratch, and the moisture is under the plastic traveling at about an inch per month. I have a PJ trailer with it as well as a thrower on a baler. It is great in its place. I have had a bunch of small parts coated that should never get scratched, but you need to be aware of it's limitations.

Sandblast and use epoxy primer inside and out. You can topcoat the inside if you want, but the epoxy itself will prevent rust, I have done it both ways. I use PPG 8568 acrylic urethane, takes less than a quart for 3 coats on front and rear.

Sand blast, prime 2 coats and then paint inside and out. Let set for several weeks so paint is good and cured then have tires mounted.

Put on the tractor and touch up any scratches from installation.

I had my wheels sandblasted and then used POR 15 for the inside surface. It seals the metal and is a tough paint.

i like the por 15 also on the inside of the rims. dries hard as nails, and if you load tires with calcium for ballast, the por 15 holds up great. also used it on the underside of the mower deck on my ztr mower.

I've never had this done but I think it would be a good idea to have the rims hotdipped galvanized. If that isn't possible I believe I would clean the rims and have them powder coated.

I think the rims on the AC Model B I restored some years ago were galvanized. I did not know where I could get them dipped, so I sprayed them silver. They have lasted great but She has led a somewhat sheltered life, also.
Good suggestion!

Sandblast, prime and paint. My local body shop friend will give me some odds and ends urethanes which I put in a gallon can and see what color comes out. Usually a dark gray. I scored a 700 dollar paint shaker off CL for $75 and I use that to "batch" the paint. Takes 1 1/2 quarts to do 2 rears and 2 fronts, 3-4 coats.

I have had leaks from nothing more than rust rubbing on the tube. So I would say that cleaning, acid wash, priming and painting is worth your time if the tractor is to get any use.
