Corrosion/Chrome lifting on OEM wheel bead

Causing slow leak

Re: Corrosion/Chrome lifting on OEM wheel bead

When I was younger and did LOF safety and tires, we used a plastic cover on the tool when mounting and removing chrome wheels. Wonder if their tool caused some of this?

Those wheels look good and a more reasonable size as well.

I love the look of those rims. I think they are actually GMC wheels but someone has stuck a bowtie cap in them. Nice touch.
Scoop them babies up Jeff!!

Id say go for those 20s. You could easily sell the 22"s for $600 in return. You are spoiled down there Jeff! Rims pit and corrode within one winter up here if not washed/waxed regularly!!

Exactly. Get some class and slap those GMC wheels on there.

Told the guy I wanted them but we can't meet till next week. He's out of town. Won't be putting them on anytime soon, however unless the bead seats start to leak really bad, because the 22s I have now only have 20K miles on them.

Put the donk wheels and tires up for sale so you can get new tires. New tires should ride nicer too with taller sidewalls on the smaller diameter wheels.
