1981 Midas Class A- Wheels before sandblasting and painting

Ok here is the pic of my front passenger wheel before sandblasting. I cant decide on white for a paint color or silver. You guys have any input? This will be only visible for a while as I am wanting to sandblast the wheels to get rid of rust and do a good job coating them to prevent future rust. but when my money permits I will be buying some wheel simulators. so the color is mostly for look between now and then. Let me know what you guys think and ill keep putting pics up in my album of my work im doing on the whole unit.

right now im wishing....soooo wishing, that I had asked the tire place to dismount the old tires, take the wheels back to my shop and sandblast, prime, then paint, then let them sit for a few days with the heat on high in the shop....then taken them back to down to have the newer used tires installed. Cause painting them with the tires on is proving to be a big pain in the ass. Just FYI for anyone considering it. The paint is just temporary from a looks standpoint and is mostly for protecting the rusty wheels from more rust. I will eventually put wheel simulators on them.
Does anyone know if I can find wheel simulators that are "outtys" on the front, but "inny's" on the rear. Kind of like a semi truck wheel would be. ???

The no mess tire mask is no masking at all. Take dish soap and wipe it over the tires. Paint the wheels then when the paint dries, hose off the the soap. I am told it works like a champ.

Good idea. Never heard of using soap instead of masking tape. Will try that next time.
