are you going to coat it or put weather stripping on the edge? can rust develop?
Mine's been like this fer 2 years with no rust.
I did this before I got my land rover...and my land rover has rusted already.

But if you want, you can just mask and spray it with something. If you need a tutorial for that, please...uh. have a professional spray can painter do it for you.

I second that.
Asking a question like that without more information is like asking whether thong looks good on women.

Well the answer is that it depends on the woman.

Same with your question.

You ask if a tire width fits?
The factors you are missing:
Wheel width
Tire height.
Ride height
Offset
Camber if you are really pushing it.

So the answer is I dunno. It depends.
