Been away for awhile... Has anything been done about the OEM "Alloy" rims that are falling apart? Any suggestions on a replacement?
Your aluminum rims aren't rusting. And the OP really needs to be more specific in what kind of corrosion he is experiencing. Florida saltwater or Canada's salted roads are going to eat aluminum rims right up.Do you mean rusting?
I've re-painted old aluminum rims which started to leak at the bead seals due to corrosion, but there is a limit to how much pitting (from rust) can be dealt with. After a certain point the best course of action is to get new rims.
Here in Canada, new 2007 FJ alloy rims are $580 each so don't throw them out even if they are really ugly. There are companies that refinish and repair alloy rims at surprisingly reasonable prices given how much labour is needed. This may be a cost effective solution and then you don't need to deal with aftermarket rims.Any suggestions on a replacement?
