Anybody ever try using White Appliance Epoxy spray can paint on the steel Rims for tires?

Just wondering how good it would be.

or What would be the best White paint to use?

I've used it on some of my wheels. I have used the Biscuit and the Almond (which is getting harder to find). Haven't taken any tires back off as yet, so not sure what will happen when I do. But they are holding well as far as looks go!

I thought Appliance White just referred to the shade, as you can have a bright or an off-white... is appliance paint another grade, such as "industrial" paint or "farm and equipment" paint, or "barn" paint or "automotive grade" paint?

Never used it on rims Doug, however I have used it for my door hinges and screw heads in my remodel project. I left them set for awhile after spraying them, and I didn't have any chipping of paint while turning in the screws. Don't know about fading, however I will say that it drys hard within time if you have the patience to wait it out and let it cure fully. I have also used it for restoring my Blitz Fogger tank, and so far it seems to be holding up really well. I know some guys are using the Almond shade for their John Deere Patio restorations, as it's a very close shade to the original Dogwood White. I haven't heard of any complaints so far.

Appliance paint is an epoxy paint. Very tough and durable. It's what is used on kitchen stoves, refrigerators, washers and driers. As johndeereelfman said you have to be patient and let it cure and it's hard as nails.

I accidentally slid a piece of metal across one of my hoods and it chipped instead of scratched the paint.

This is what it says on the Rustoleum Technical Data sheet for their Appliance epoxy paint. I noticed that it says "for indoor metal surfaces". That being said I just tried some on a craftsman wheel. It looks good, but time will tell.

machines, dryers and other indoor metal applications such as

tables or cabinets.

I saw that also, INDOOR METAL SURFACES

that's why I started this thread to see if anyone has used it and the results they got.

Well, I did the Ford wheels with that in 2011 and they still look real nice! And it sits out all the time!
