Wheels

Hey, I got stock 5spoke wheels on my 98 that have salt corosion. If I break the clearcoat and scratch it, it'll come off.......I was thinking of getting a wirebrush and attaching it to a drill and wirebrushing all 4 wheels then spray clearcoat on them. Anyone have any ideas?

Depending on what you use it for...I'd say spray them black!! That'd look cool if you have a lift OR if you are more of a street jeep, then do black, but leave a little gray lip and make the black look good.

just my .02--I would do the same, but I have 5.9 wheels and don't want to spray paint them...They were $$$

Well, just some spray paint would work, but any local auto store should have something that would work for you. If nothing else then spray paint them and make it look as best as possible, also you could get some clear coat and go over the paint to give it a little shine or something...just a thought.

yea, I think I am going to strip the clearcoat and wirebrush them until all the corrosion comes off. Then I'll spraypaint them with clearcoat and hope that it lasts and looks nice.

If your wirebrush is too abraisive you will have nasty swirls in the metal...even if you spray clearcoat.

If I were doing this project I would visit a local body shop or drop by autozone and ask if there is a liquid you can rub onto the wheels to remove the corrosion and factory clearcoat. Most body shops may have suggestions of their own, you can post them here and see whst others think.

If you haven't already, post this question in "Lifts/Shocks/Tires" forum to see what those gurus say.

And always remember, planning is key before attempting any project.
