2004 Porsche 996 GT3 RS

Sad I am, I know, but they are so prone to rot that I thought I had better put some protection on them. Started with the NSF, this wheel has started to craze, but its not too bad.

So wheel off and Zymol wheel cleaner, wd40 to get rid of tar, then dry and Sonus SPX1 to polish, ChemicalGuys Wheelguard (cheers G) x 2 coats, finished off with Zymol Titanium wax, tyres dressed with Zymol tyre dressing.

Also took the opportunity to clean and polish the wing liner and spray on Sonus Trim and Motorcote, I'll see how long it lasts?

You could join the class action being made against Porsche for the poor alloys. Most (if not all) the GT3RS owners have had no luck with Porsche GB on having wheels refurbed/replaced.

Anyway Daz you know you want them painted black Wink

I know, mind you I get out enough during the week!

She is definately a looker, pics don't do her justice. Funnily the main worry when I was getting it was that I wouldn't like the interior, but I love it, its just basic but somehow better? If that makes any sense!

Doubt very much your peeling wheels will be covered under warranty, the RS boys have even gone as far as solicitors letters, to no avail!

No pledge this time, used Sonus Trim and Motorcote, we'll see how well it last?

I reckon WD40 is probably the best thing to use under the arches, my old man swears by it!

Nice looking Stu. Best not to brake to keep the dust off them! Very Happy

RS wheels? People are wasting their time/solicitors money sending letters to Porsche. They should send them to BBS who make them in the first place.

That'll do a fat lot of good if BBS are insolvent?
