Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: POR 15 on Rims?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Paul Sherman Tacoma WA on Saturday, January 06, 2018 - 01:18 pm:

I am gathering stuff together to paint when it gets warmer. I think I will first paint my rims with Silver POR 15, then POR 15 primer then paint my rims. I can not find where the final color for rims was mentioned, but I am thinking it was a zink color. Wrong or right?

Thank you Paul in Tacoma

There are some pics on the forum of guys who had their rims regalvinized and to me they look like a semi gloss silver. I primed mine and used rustoleum silver. That was close enough for me. Maybe a to bright for some people. Original zinc is a little more dull than silver but that's just me.

Newly galvanized rims look like this. Over the years they become less shiny but remain the same color. Oklahoma chrome is the usual substitute.

I sandblasted mine and painted them with that cold galvanize paint and they are holding up after about 7 years.

Zinc after five years.

Cold galvanize paint, mine after about same time and except for scratches are doing fine. They are a nice silver/gray aged color now, matches the aged patina of the car.

I have found a few hot dip galvanised rims. However, I believe rims were electro zinc plated originally. This finish is finer than galvanising, probably cheaper, and not as long lasting.

I did mine with Rustoleum ''aluminium'' color. I know, I know, but they ARE ''T''wheels

Were the 21 inch rims painted or plated? I see lots of info and questions on the clincher rims, not so much on the split. (of course in the past I have been dealing with clinchers so really have not payed a lot of attention to others)
