Since I have new shoes coming from Miller Tires, I figure I may as well sand/repaint the rims. They are in good shape, not badly rusted, just alot of surface rust. What rattle-can color/shade of white would y'all recommed? I would like factory color. Does Rustoleum have the exact color I will need, or is there a better brand?

The lugs are rusty too, is there a color for them? Black, chrome, etc? I'm thinking chrome would look good against the white rim..... but should probably stick to black (?). I have short chrome stems coming, maybe the lug-bolts should be chrome also. Yea, I think I'll do that. While I'm at it... fresh paint.... hmmm, too many projects, might be a while. I like original work clothes.

Thanks

I'm thinking I will also fill the tires with RV anti-freeze, that or window washer fluid. How much fluid does each tire take? I'm thinking I've read the easiest way is to lay tire flat, break tire loose and pour the fluid in?

I will have a sno blo'r on the front for winter, so I'm thinking with that weight fluid in the front is a no-no?

Thanks

Thanks. I'll try to find some Rustoleum Ivory White. I may paint the lug nuts red, or chrome, have not decided yet. Right now they are rusty so I have to do something with them.
