    I read a thread recently on here about someone that painted their mowers wheels gloss black, and how much they liked how it turned out, Well, I did it to my ferris today, and as you can see, it looks great! It really made the mower look alot better in my opinion. I am probably going to paint the castor wheels too, but they will hard to clean! And its likely I will do the same to all my WBs.

    Yes please paint the front wheels. It does look good too. Id imagine they will look cleaner not being white and showing all that drit on them.

    dismount the tires and get them powder coated or it won't last worth a crap.

    I roughed up the original finish quite a bit before painting and also used an epoxy paint. It should be pretty resilient?
