Help with painting GTS wheels

I know how to paint them but do i only paint the spokes and outside or do i paint behind the spokes as well? I don't think i do and if i don't what should i use to put behind the spokes to keep the overspray off the inside of the wheel?

no one will see behind your rims so theres no point of painting them, unless you want to waste paint

just spray the rim, then rotate the wheel as you get inside the wheel arches, then do the center hub,make sure yo remove the little toyota cap in the middle first though. A little overspray goes inside but not enough to really notice..or care about since you cant see it, any more questions?

i took 3"x5" cards and ripped them in half, then i insert them along the rdge where the rim meets the tire, just stick them in, then i used some painters blue tape to tape them to the tire,every 3-4 cards it worked great

I heard you can also use a deck of cards to go around the rims.
