I carefully painted the rims well under where the tyres are fitted, I then carefully selected a tyre centre where I explained my plan to the bloke that fitted the tyres and he was very careful. The paint inside the back of the rim was damaged from the clamps on the machine but that was easily taken care of.
The paint seal around the edge of the wheel where it meets the tyre was undamaged.
Like I say, small thing to get too excited about, but I am very pleased with the effect and it has been tried and tested now and all seams fine.
