    I plan on putting POR 15 on my steelie's before having new tires mounted on them. There is a small bit of rust and I just want to try to keep it from growing. Do I need to use anything on the rim before coating with the POR 15? I have sanded and am ready to paint tomorrow.

    After you sand, clean the rims so that there is no dirt or dust, a chemical cleaner like 100% alcohol or mineral spirits works best. Wipe them down with a white rag of some sort until they come clean. Then you are ready for paint. Optimum temps for paint is about 70*f, but as long as the temp is above 55*f, it should adhere good.
