Nah man should still be the same, just try and sand in the gaps as much as possible, the more sanding the better the bond and the finish. You can leave the tyre on - I used a deck of cards to wedge in between the tyre and rim.. I did the front surface and all the inside of the rim. You should paint the inside and outside of the wheel as any differences in the thickness of the paint application between coats can lessen durability and sometimes cause flaking. So a nice even coat all over. You may need 5-6 cans of color spray to do the face of the wheel + inside properly.
