Rim ?????

Unread postby The Rock on Tue Dec 01, 2009 8:34 am

As I am looking out the window at the rain and 14 deg out side. :cry: Thinking to my self, after looking at the form, winter is comming and so is Santa. :D :D What does every one do with there rims. On my 5er the rims are white after a couple of years they look like, well you know. :evil: I was thinking of putting rust check on the rims but did not know what that stuff was going to do to the tires. What do you guys think :?: :?:

you could use a product called fluid film and spary them in & out. This product is used as an antirust. It crawls to places you can't reach and does a miracle job. Only glitch is that you will need to unmount the rim in spring to wash it all off. A hot water pessure washer should do the job.

To be able to wash off all the product you shot inside the rim. Let's no forget that this stuff will have anything stick to it and if it's not washed off, your rim might get unbalanced if enough dirt stick to it.

By unmounting the rim, I mean unmount it from the RV and not the tire off the rim.

I normally do the hot water pressure wash because of hot water the stuff on the rim is removed easily & no require more wash.
