what color?

What was the original wheel color on my 66 Overlander? I am replacing the tires and I thought I would paint the wheels while I had them off. The hub caps are in good shape but rusted. Any tips on bringing them back to decent shape without a rechrome job?

Thanks, TomE

I think they were painted silver.

Black may have been the color. It was the color of the rims on my '66 Overlander however I am not convinced my rims were original.

I would suggest to powder coat the wheels as this method will take the abuse that wheel get exposed to in use.

And paint them any color that suits your fancy. For many that is silver to match the trailer.
