Oxidized Clear Coat on Wheel Lips

2696 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  eclipto
I have a set of Racing Hart Evolution C5's and the clear coat of the lips is very oxidized and chipping. How should I go about removing it to put a new coat on? A friend of mine recommended steel wool, but would a very light grain of sand paper do the job fine? And also, would I need to remove my tires to apply the new clear coat? :scratch:

when i redid some irocs i had to sand down alot because if you dont get all the oxodation off it will just come right back soon after. i sanded them then wet sanded and used some rubbing compound and then cleared them.
Do you remember what grit you used? Also, should I take the tires off the wheels? I'd rather not, and the side by the tires don't seem oxidized at all, but if it will make a big difference I'd do it.
Alright, thanks a lot for the help guys! Hopefully I'll be getting around to this during the coming weekend...

Alright, thanks a lot! I'm guessing you have experience with this sort of thing?
