Got these rims along with my bird.


Are those supposed to be silver or light grey? I started to wash silver rims,but finally turned out with light grey.. pressure washer peeled the silver off..what the duck?

What model tbird had these rims originally?

Duplicolor Clear Wheel Paint

Optional on Base/LX and Cougar LS from 89-92.
1991-1992 Thunderbird Sports got these wheels as well..


Tipu..

I had these wheels on my Sport originally, and experienced a similar effect..

Being as meticulous as I am..I was always scrubbing on them with a green scotch brite pad to keep the brake dust off..

Eventually the clear finish was worn in places after years of scrubbing, but they still managed to look good for a stock wheel..

If that lack of shine really bothers you..After a good thorough cleaning you could reapply a clear coat to the wheels every once in awhile..

Duplicolor makes an excellent clear wheel paint..I've used on several different grey/silver aluminum wheels with success..

I wonder what Brandon ever did with my old wheels?

Last I knew, kpthefatty was using them for his winter tires.

Thanks again for doing that. Four years ago, almost? :)

I'm glad I could help..It was also nice seeing those wheels live on instead of going to the scrapper..

Congrats on the seats..Post some pics when you get a chance.. ;)
