Restore rims

Recommended Posts

I imported a R34 recently that sat on a Nissan dealership lot for over a year. Because of this, my wheels started to rust and pick up all sorts of weathering on them. I’ve cleaned the wheels and done a vinegar and aluminum foil session on them to try to remove the rust but it seems like there may be an easier way. I thought maybe power washing them would help but I’m not sure if that may damage them. the rims I have are the stock GTTs for reference. Is there any other methods I can use to help remove the rust and gets these things back to normal? The front of the rims is generally ok, a little paint wear here and there and that’s it.

 

I’ve attached a couple photos. The original condition and the cleaned up version.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

You could either paint them or get them powdercoated.

Keep in mind that the rust is not from the wheels, it's from the brakes. The product CLR Clear might be strong enough to clean it off.

Just the obvious ones - treat with rust killer and spray paint with a can.
