    Wheel Protection

    In light of my purchase of new wheels for Nymphadora, I was wondering if there is a treatment I can do to the wheels to keep the paint from scratching. I'm going to go check out Auto Zone tomorrow, but I figured you guys would have more experience then the common cashier.

    You'll just have to be very careful. Unless there is something else out there I've never heard of.

    Nah, I just want some protection from the stiff brushes used to clean wheels of brake dust, that's all...I don't plan on playing chicken with the curb or anything

    Oh, In that case. You don't need to worry. It will just wipe off. I had some powdercoated one's on my explorer, they were the easiest to clean. Just water and rag. Don't use a ruff brush.

    If they are powdercoated, Simple green and a rag will clean them right up.
