Anyone know if its ok for me to run my aluminum Outlaw II's in the winter...im pretty sure they have a clear coat on them but not possitive...I dont know how they will react to the sault? Is there anything that i could put on them to protect them?...I really have no idea on this topic, hell i dont even know if this is in the right forum... :wall:

the sault will cause the clear coat to come off and then ur rims will carode (sp?) so if they are nice rims and u still want them to look good in a couple of years i would suggest runnin some steelies... i dont know of anything that u can put over them to protect them as like a polish or anything...maybe more layers of clear coat...

you could put some wax on there to protect it too.

cooking pam will also keep the crap from sticking that or stuff like the wd-40/slick 50 weekly wipedowns will work great for keeping the wheels clean that is what i did when i had my chevy on alu. wheels i think they were the same ones you have

Yeah, they all sound like great ideas, im just trying to preserve the clear coat as long as possible and prevent corrosion...the petroleum jelly sounds like a good idea, im sure the cooking spray and the wax would also work...thanks for all of the suggestions guys
:D:

:withstupid: Put a very heavy coat of wax and keep them clean. The WD40 idea is cool also

:withstupid: wax is all you need. i have the same rims, during the winter months i try to wash my truck once a week. call it a little overboard but i like to clean my wheels once a week with wheel cleaner when i wash my truck and throw a coat of wax on them shortly after. it doesnt take more than 5 min to wax 4 rims....no swirl application needed, wax on wax off.


p.s. during summer months waxing an aluminum rim every month or so is good habit :bigthumb:
