Recommended Posts

Hello ,

i have a lot of oil on my wheel rims ( not sure if that is the right term ) but i using wd40 very slightly but its taking the paint off my wheels . its basically oil off me chain think i been putting to much on lol :stupid:

Is there a better way of getting it off maybe with a foam spary or something like that?

Wd40 won't remove paint... Unless someone has painted your wheels with the wrong paint!!

Are you sure its not brake fluid?? Brake fluid will strip paint.

Detergent mixed with hot water and a stiff (ish) brush should do it.

If the paint is flaking off, then this will be due to a poor application in the first place or, as stated, you have some kind of 'stripper' fluid on there.

Hi, It sounds to me like your applying way to much lube or using crap gear. I would suggest you give the chain a good clean and apply a good chain lube. This kit here should do you fine.

All l do to clean my wheel's is to give them a quick wipe with a rag and WD40
