Alloy wheel refurbishment
#1
Alloys on the V70 are leaking at the rims, last time i got tyres fitted the guy said the inside of the rims were corroded and tried to seal it using tyre seal but hasnt worked.
Has anyone had wheels refurbished is it worth it and what kind of price?

Daughter's Corsa wheel did this and the tyre place fitted them with some mastic on the bead and cured it perfectly.
So where does this bit go then ?

Something like the stuff kitchen and bathroom fitters use to seal round baths and sinks. It didn't look like anything special they just spread it on before they fitted the tyre. It might just be one of their tricks of the trade or something special they used but it certainly did the trick.

Sounds good as long as it's kind to the rubber.
