096 Mag wheel before GL 24-07-14 097 Mag wheel after GL 24-07-14
Has one of your old school wheels got a slow annoying leak that you can’t seem to find ? If so try checking for leaks through the wheel itself as it’s quite possible like this one that the factory paint inside the rim is no longer sealing the porous alloy & is allowing the air to escape.
Once determined that that’s the case, a quick blast with fine grade glass or garnet to key it followed by an etch primer & 1 or 2 coats of suitable enamel and your problem should be solved.
