    Rims - Before/After

    well, i finally got off my lazy ass and cleaned my rims the way ive been planning since i got the car. the previous owners really neglected them. you can kinda see how oxidized they are in this pictures. they looked white like salt




    so i put the car on the lift, removed the wheels and brought em to the house for the weekend for a major face lift. here's some before and afters. not bad for 6yr old wheels i think.



    <6yrs of brake dust/road grime

    I am VERY supprised to see all the nuts on the back of the wheel. Most companies (wheels I have handled) use plastic "rivits" for looks and they are a PITA to mess with.

    They look really good, hard work paying off!

    the fake rivits are a major pain.
