Am restoring a 1977 Schwinn Town and Country and switched out the wheels to get rid of the obsolete Schwinn odd ball sized rims and tires. The only thing available in 24"X 1.75" were steel rims, no alloy.My problem is that I live on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, everything rusts here and quick,so my question is : how to protect them. My thoughts so far are: wax the hell out of them, or maybe some clear lacquer sprayed on them, SS spokes for sure.So what do you think would be the best way to protect them? Thanks!
