The Importance of Cleaning Wheel Corrosion

Cleaning both the rim and hub assembly is an important process to do when the wheels are removed from your vehicle. Over a period of time; if left uncleaned; there will likely be a buildup of corrosion between the rim and hub. This corrosion can cause a false clamping force when the wheel is torqued, leading to the lug nuts coming loose. In severe cases, this “false torque” can lead to a wheel falling off the vehicle.  Here at Good’s Auto Service, each technician is equipped with special tools in order to clean off this dreaded corrosion. We perform this process as a courtesy service to our customers, as there is no charge for this procedure.
