With the arrival of my Spring/Fall wheel setup, it was time to prepare my stock 21" wheels for storage for the coming winter. I love these wheels, but I don't know what do with regard to wrapping them with rubber. The Pirellis are already looking spent, and I don't want to shell out 2 large for another set. I am hoping someone out there releases a 255/40R21 performance all-season at some point.
The job was a long one. I picked up some tar on the highway a few weeks ago, so it took me about an hour per wheel to rid each one of that nasty stuff. I washed the wheels, decontaminated the with Iron-X, polished with Menzerna's FG400, and sealed with GTechniq's C5 Wheel Armour coating. I bagged them with Audi tire totes, now I just need someone to help me hoist them into position on the wall rack.

I'm just a guy who loves his garage, Audi, and detailing so much he blogs about them.
