I bought some wheels off of a member, and during the cleaning, I noticed alot of old road tar on the wheels. I got the wheels looking pretty good, just having some problems getting the tar off. Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance!
Go to the hardware store and get a gallon of mineral spirits ( varsol etc ) and soak a rag in it and lt it dwell on the wheel to dissolve the tar.
Thats all I use even on the car body ... cheaper than the specialty boutique stuff and does the same ..
Verry safe too ..
I've had good success with mineral spirits as well--very cheap stuff.
Example, I bought a set of used wheels and wanted to get them pristine before mounting. I washed with soap and water, then went to work with a clay bar. 30 minutes of frustration later I tried mineral spirits and everything came off almost instantly.
Use a sealant like Nu Finish after the mineral spirits to keep things looking good.
