    I am stuck in a dilemma...I am relocating to a area that has hard water...the driveway is a two car parking...my sis, her husb and me all own a vehicle. Its their house so parking in the garage was out of the question from the beginning. No matter if I park in the left right or middle side...I am gonna be hit my the sprinklers. Chrome wheels and body is no match for the hard water they have here. What should I do? I have a alarm and the neighborhood is okk but no where is safe from burglary. Park in the driveway and get my truck ruined or park in the street and risk someone breaking into my truck??? Any tips would help. I thought about a truck cover but that only covers the body still exposing half of the rims & tires.

    I'd imagine there is no deterrent difference between parking in the driveway and the street. Assuming it is a matter of feet we're talking about here.

    Or you can get hyperanal and get a truck cover and/or wheel covers and take them on and off every time you drive.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Wax your truck once in a while and it will be fine.
