hemmer get some real wax and grease remover. like lesonal or sikkens stuff. and soak them! just wipe on and wipe off till there isnt any more dirt on the wipe off towel.

Black glossy spray. IMO Rustolum paint works just make sure its the hi-gloss cause it creates a better water and dirt restistance because of the glossy surface... sorry for not getting back sooner hope you get this in time...

This is how some old time truckers did it.
This is a great way of doing it, I forgot about this part. the vasaline is also good for shining tires too...

oh and is it alright if i do all this while they are still on the tires? cuz they're on my car right now and was just gonna do it like that.
if ya don't mind a little paint on the tires then go for it! otherwise I'd try to mask them off a little. try plastic garbage bags around the tires with a little tape and you should be good. but I agree with everyone else when I say LETS SEE THE PICS!!!

I'd go to someplace that sells supplies to body shops and get some of the masking spray they make, I did my trailer rims w/out dismounting the tires and I don't care how hard you try, you will get over spray on the tires! You can see how rusty they were, so it looks much better now, but it'd look even better w/out the paint on the tires!

foxinthemudd go to Home depot or lowes or whatever Home improvement store and look for something called navel jelly. it dissovles rust. just follow the instructions on the package, then go get some GOOD spray in what ever color and have a blast. good luck and take pics!
