Bolt the wheels onto the car and spin them. With something steady,
such as a pile of 2x8s or a concrete block, you can then rest a
screwdriver on the block and touch the tip to the revolving wheel. You
want to check for out-of-round (flat spots) and for in-and-out motions to
be sure that the wheels are not bent. If they pass that test, then wash
them carefully and inspect for cracks or any other problems. The
previous owner may have had a reason to replace them....
As to the mask, you will find opinions for it and against it. I've
painted the wheels pretty well with masking tape and considerable time.
The mask may reduce the effort.
