Wheel painting


New member
Hi All,

I am looking for some advice on wheel painting, when painting wheels I get a lot of over spray on both side of the wheels. I put the wheels on a metal frame lying down back facing up and spray the back first, turn the wheel front up ready to spray and the over spray has came through to the front of the wheel.

Hope someone can tell me how to paint wheels properly.


What I normally do is I have a double "A" rack with a pole that extends from one to the other. I place the pole through where the axle would end.
This what you can spin the wheels, do the backside and the front. You will really need 4 "A" frames with 2 poles

OR, you can always do the backside first, mask it up the next day, then do the front side.

The first suggestion is easier...just have to make the A frames
