I fitted a pair of tyres to the old FJ. The bike is not on the road at the minute but it's as well fitting them if only because they can be swapped onto the new bike quickly if needed. The rims were a bit tatty so I re-painted them using Ford Nimbus Grey (a metallic silver-grey) which is a perfect match with the original paint. Getting a good finish on wheels is easy if I put them on the wheel stand I use for balancing. I spin the wheel as I spray it and this gives a nice even coating with no runs.
