Hey gang,

First winter in New England and made it through, except I have a bit of rust on the hubs. See photo. How best to address? Wire wheel, rust bullet, then some Krylon black? Any better ideas? Time to replace my center caps?

Take the nuts off and throw them away, brush the threads with a brass or stainless brush, put new nuts on. You can pull the center cap off and toss it and replace it with new. All very cheap parts.

Nuts are <$1.00ea

Caps are $1.78ea

Nice-I don’t usually love replacing vs repairing but at those prices I think I can swing it. What about the rears, any tips on those?
