Prepping my LMGTs for winter.

Recommended Posts

Seeing as I had the afternoon off all to myself I thought I'd prep my rims for the winter :lol:

So I jacked up the car.

Nismos off.

OEM Tourings on.

Washed rims.

Dried.

Fallout remover (IronX)

Rinsed

Tar remover (ValetPro)

Wash and rinse.

Clay.

Wash and rinse.

Dried with a towel and put in the kitchen awaiting bone dryness.

Must be getting old as I found it a hard slog in today's heat.

Then off out for drinks with the lads.

Just come back and given them an IPA wipe down.

Nismo LMGT4s awaiting a coat of C5

Not looking too bad after being run daily for 10 years :thumbs:

Off to bed now.

Will coat them with Gtechniq C5 in the morning

Wife and kids away for a couple days.

An opportunity like this is very rare.

She'd not be best pleased having wheels take up the kitchen floor!

Consider it a blessing.

Better than a blow out or wrecked wheel.

Hopefully it's repairable and won't cost too much to fix :thumbs:

Oriiginals as per OP VERY Expensive. Many run the ROTA Gtr replicas which are very good. Had a set on my old 350z.
