Anyone else got OSD cleaning salt off wheels

9 posts in this topic

Im sure thats what my neighbours think i have - OSD. Given the state of the roads at the minute and heaps of salt is anyone else like me and trying everything possible to try and keep the white worm at bay on Monza 2s.

I did ask myself am i wise - and the answer to that is no probably not. Especially over the weekend where the water i was using to wash the wheels was almost instantly freezing on the ground.

Anyway, if anyone else is a bit like me with the wheels, i personally have tried many different waxs and just recently have switched to collinite 915, by far the best i have used so far. After about 3 coats the grime just runs off.

Cheers

No, you're not alone. Got a couple of coats of Collinite 476 on mine and that seems to work well. As nice a those wheels look, they are a pain in this type of weather.

I washed the whole car yesterday with snow and ice all around me. Had a couple of good cartoon type close falls on the ice. Neighbours are pretty much used to me doing stupid things at stupid times with the car by now :grin:

Will probably just use the company car until after Xmas / New Year now anyway.

Very wise to do all you can to keep off the dreaded white worm on Monza 18's. Wash your wheels even if you don't wash the rest of your car, is my advice.

If you didn't drive a GTI, I'd think you'd drive a Mesobitchy...

I have CDO, which is like OCD, but in alphabetical order as it should be.
