    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.

    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.
