Here is a tip you might want to watch if you change your own tires.
The first time I cleaned the rims on vehicles I had bought used it took some effort to get the rims clean. The second time there was a lot less to clean up and the job was much easier.Thank Fred, That's a great tip. I have used a scotch pad but with a citrus cleaner, but it took a lot of elbow grease too.
Thanks Fred. I try to clean them, but I've never used mineral spirits before. I'll try
mineral spirits in the future.
One word of caution using mineral spirits. Make sure any material, such as a rag or scouring pad, that has mineral spirits on it is disposed of or stored safely as these materials could spontaneously ignite. Placing them in a metal container with a tight lid, such as a paint can, is one way.
