What is the easiest way to get paint and overspray off of the tires? The last person wasn't to neat on the paint job of the rims. I am going to repaint the tractor this spring and don't to repeat his mistakes. Masking off is an option but I saw in a collectors book where they had painted the rims and had spray all over the tires. This has to come off somehow, any suggestions?

I have used coarse steel wool and a fair amount of 'elbow grease' to remove paint from tires. An easier way is to use the steel wool and some paint stripper. The strippers I have used do not seem to affect the rubber.

Hi you said your going to repaint the tractor just sandblast the tires also It does wonders for old tires almost gives them a new look & get's rid of all the old paint When we mount used tires we blast them first. When painting the rim's with the tire mounted take half in tape & go around the rim as close as you can after the first ring of tape you can use 1 in to make it go faster. We tape out at least 3 in when done use lacquer thinner for clean up

I have done two tractors. I used masking tape and newspaper. Masking tape on the tire along the rim with newspaper over the tire to the inside of the rim and more tape. Take the masking tape right up to where the tire bead enters the rim.

I do not care to put oil or grease on the rubber itself.

I don't know how to get overspray off but I do know if you use crisco you can spread it on the tires and wipe it right off when you're done painting.

Before you spray (grease your tire) put some vasoline on your finger to get real close to the rim, never let it get on the rim or the paint will not stick. I have used grease many times, or kerosene / fuel oil. If your tire is jacked up and you roll it real slow you can apply it very fast. Let your paint job set a week before power washing carfuly. You can use fuel oil on a rag to coat the big parts of the tire, you must use common sence when applying so it does not run down the tire and on to the rim.

Mike: I restored a tractor this summer that had the same problem. The guy before me had paint all over the tires, I tried every thing you can imagine to clean them and got no where. Then I found that you can a tire paint, it is a latex based paint that you can spray on the tire. It is available at Meyers tire, an antique tire dealer in Ohio. It looks really good and most people think I have new tires. It seems to hold up pretty good also. There may be other places you can get it too. Dave

I'd try to use a wire brush on a die grinder LIGHLY!! You may even try a wire brush on a dremmel first to see if it works. Tire shops use wire whels, or a special grinder all the time to prep for patches, so should be ok

Hold some cardboard at the edge of rim. This will keep most of the spary off. Then use paint thinner or gas on a rag and clean as soon as possible. You do not or will not care to clean the whole tire.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
