True. > Nothing unusual about a wire > brush when you switch wheels, I shouldn't think. Maybe that's just me? It is not just you. I wirebrush the rim/disk surfaces and keep them dry, use some aluminium/aluminum paste on the hub center, keep one set of wheel screws for summer and one for winter (the unused set is kept in individual compartments in plastic boxes, one box for each wheel), use a torque wrench to tighten the screws, and fill the tires/tyres with air from my own compressor. Pedantic? Perhaps, but I do like my wheels to stay attached to the car. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com/saab/
