Steel wire brush to alloy wheels


Recommended Posts

So I used paint thinner on my long champs but there were some pretty damn stubborn spots so I ended up using a steel wire brush to get some things out. I didn't think of the consequences till after but I realized I could be damaging the wheel. I still have to sand it with a 400 etc to get a nice polish out of it.


Am I really in that great of danger for wheel? I've heard it could be unbalanced now but can't I rebalance them? The wheels are my longchamps.

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures because the damage wasn't anything that was exactly noticeable. It was a hand brush, no high-power tools. Thanks for the confirmation. It seems as if I'm fine.
