Restoring Z28 rims?

Post by econo racer » Tue May 07, 2019 9:21 am

I have an old set of Z28 camaro 5 spoke steel rims. They need to be sand blasted inside and out. After this is done I want to spray 2 coats of primer sealer on the outside. Is it safe to do this on the inside of the rim that the tire covers? Or is that some how dangerous? I would not mount the tires back on for at least a week. They fit good under my nova with slicks.

I have seen plenty of steel wheels that are painted black in that area. I cant imagine primer hurting anything but I would probably actually put a good coat of quality black paint on them instead. They grey for the spokes is available from several sources if you want to keep the original look.

I agree with having them coated they’ll look good for a long time
