Cleaning Up the Rims

The rims seemed to be in pretty bad shape so I did some research online to find the most effective way to clean them. I was surprised to find the solution most used was Coke and aluminum foil. I figured I had nothing to lose so I gave it a try.

The process was simple – pour some of the soda on the rims and then use the foil just like sandpaper. Some of the tougher areas I had to go over twice but the results were amazing.

I started with the front wheel.

Quite a difference when compared the rear wheel which I still have to work on.

Even though it was tedious work I was very pleased with how it turned out.
