Give it a try and let me know how it works. And, the overspray will make your tires look nice
Hey Tom!
Good tip. I bought some heavy duty rims from bikeworldusa which are nice and a deal for the money...HOWEVER, the chrome is on the wimpy side and a little moisture starts surface rust easily. I'll try the wd-40. Some people up here give a surface lure a shot, claiming it is attractive to fish. Idunno if it is or not. I wouldn't want to make my rims more attractive to say, dogs.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
