Tips For Fixing Gutter Rash On A Rim

When you get hit with the sad news of a damaged rim, you only have two options to choose from. One of the options you have is to purchase a new rim, which can be way too expensive. The other option you have is to repair the rim that is damaged. One major challenge about fixing a gutter rash is that a lot of people don’t know how to do it.

On the brighter side, your badly damaged aluminum rim can be fixed easily with some simple gutter rash repair tips. But if you don’t have spare time or don’t want to bother yourself with the stress of fixing it, you can outsource to a professional. When you outsource to a professional, the quality of service you will get can’t be compared to when you do it yourself.

To start the process, you’ll need a few things. You’ll need various sandpaper grades, including 80, 220, and up to 2500. Some other things you will need include aluminum polish, filtered water, a towel or polishing cloth, and eye protection.

Listed below are the tips to help your rim:

Check if the Rim Has a Protective Coating

You should start by using a 220 grit sandpaper to scrub the damaged spot. In order to know if the rim has a protective coating, after sanding the damaged spot, check the color of the dust that was generated, if the dust is white in color rather than grey, it means the wheel has a protective coating.

Wipe the Coating off the Rim

You need to wipe out the coat all-round the wheel. You can do this by using a 220 grit sandpaper to scrub the wheel. Completely get rid of the coating, and you can only achieve this when the grey dust starts appearing rather than white.

Polish the Gutter Rash

Use an 80 grit sandpaper to polish the area that is damaged; you have to do this until the spot is smooth. Once the spot is smooth, you can use a 400 grit sandpaper to furnish the spot. You should also apply some pressure while sanding the spot to make sure there are no ridges and everywhere is leveled. You should wipe off the dust generated on the surface with a soft cloth or towel to ensure the surface is level.

Polish the Repaired Spot

You will need a 200 grit sandpaper for this process. You need to do this with less pressure; you also need to focus on the edges in order to very smooth surface. Use moist sandpaper to scrub for about five minutes. After which you can use a dry towel or soft cloth clean all the dust and use it to dry the rim.

Final Polishing

Apply a reasonable amount of aluminum polish to the spot. Apply enough polish to make sure the spot blends properly. Apply pressure while polishing it with a soft cloth. Rub until the cloth turns black.

When doing this, make sure make sure you apply some safety measures to ensure that the dust does not get into the tire, you should also make sure your eyes are protected during the process.
