chrome rims

hey this is my first post on this site just need some help. I have a chrome rim on the back but it has started corroding badlu around the spokes. I was going to just strip it back and paint the rim but my mate said paint will screw with the brakes. Is there anything i can do?

Chrome rims are better for braking. It depends what rim it is... if it is an Odyssey rim, you may just be able to send it to them and get a whole new one. Otherwise, you are pretty much out of luck.

Oxalic acid (wood bleach) is good for removing rust/corrosion from chrome w/o damaging the chrome.

Antifreeze actually doesn't taste that bad, kinda sweet.

Cruisin in my 64 ragtop
I got alotta juice alotta ****in' block
Now when i hit that switch im bouncin
More bounce to the ounce and im clownin'
Keep the *** in my lap
Cuz im fully strapped
For the carjackas ,but no haps
cuz i pack the tech 9' plus an ak47
Send a one way ticket to my hell or maybe heaven
Peep ***** i dont sleep
Bury muther****ers in the concrete
You try to creep kinda slow in the astro
But i peep you niggaz out in my left window
So i blast and i blast 'til i blast no more
Yo they call a muther****er John Doe




Take care of your bike and it wont rust. Use WD-40 to get it off. And don't paint your back rim.

Chrome, She can see herself In the shiny grill and the
Wire wheels of a red Chevelle with four on the floor and the top down
Chrome, zippin' by on an Electra Glide
With dual tail pipes doin' 105 in the broad daylight
On a two-lane headin' outta town

Forget Pink and purple paisleys
little mellow-yellow daisies
Ain't no pot of gold in her rainbow
Her favorite color is ..Chrome

Chrome, get her leg up high
on the bumper of my big black Mack truck
With a smoke stack pointed towards the sky
And mud flaps, you know the kind
Chrome,I said hey little girl you sure look nice
Do you wanna ride, I won't bite, she climbs inside
Says hell no, I want to drive

Forget Pink and purple paisleys
little mellow-yellow daisies
Ain't no pot of gold in her rainbow
Her favorite color is ..Chrome

It's chrome alright Shiny,nice polished
Chrome, Chrome

Forget Pink and purple paisleys
little mellow-yellow daisies
Ain't no pot of gold in her rainbow
Her favorite color is ..Chrome

Her favorite color is...chrome
That girl is all about chrome
She sure loves chrome

Mude's lyrics were a country song by Trace Adkins. Not rap. Country.

I posted Rap.
