I've tried the wd40 thing, didn't really like it. I prefer regular soap and water, seems to leave them much cleaner. With the prices of wheels these days, (spokes of course) not much need for taking care of them, might as well buy a new wheel or 2 every summer. :biggrin:

the wd40 seems to break down the dust-grime on the rim, but I don't think it shines the same. If you have juice, you should be able to get a new rim or two every couple of years. If your rims don't last that long from normal washing etc, you might be doing something wrong.

i've had them on my ride for a month and a half and its gonna start snowing and they will put salt down and i don't want it eating the chrome. i don't thimk theres anything wrong with that.

WD-40 will crack your seals in the long run, use baby oil or the synthetic oil. WD-40 eats grease and is a solvent, you don't want that shit on your seals.
