,"ALL" of your filters and regulators should be on the wall,,,NOT on your gun!

I think a lot of guys start out this way trying to be certain the gun is set perfect and the air is clean. Nothing wrong with it until you try to spray something and all the junk hanging off the gun makes it difficult or impossible to do so.
If you have adequate filtering before the air hose (and only use that air hose for your painting) you won't need the filter at the gun. Also the digital guns still allow you to have a gauge at the gun without taking up any extra space.
Some guys use a detachable regulator that they put on the gun just to get the air pressure set and then remove when they begin spraying.

Take the wheels to a tire shop. Have them break the bead down just on the outer side of the wheel. you will be amazed at how much room you have to tape up between the rim and tire. When you are done painting,remove the tape and air the tire back up.

Thanks you everyone for all the advices, the tire on the wheels are " stretch tyres " i'm not sure if we say that in english, in France it's " pneus à Flanc tendu " so it's a little bit different because the entire tyre is annoying

I have paint the wheels yesterday, i wanted to wait for more hot temperatures, but my friend asked me to paint them whatever the temperature, so i did it, but the results is bad ! 7 degrees here ( 45 degrees Fahrenheit ), i painted with the regular gun, without the filter and regulators but there are a lot of runs, i was expecting it because of the temperature, but i just obey the order of my friend ..

That's a shame ! i don't love to work on these conditions :evil:
