    Recently bought a new set of 17x9 rims for my 09 trd sport and was wondering what would be the best way to protect them against salt and the elements this winter? i live in southern West Virginia btw and our winters can be pretty nasty.

    Just spray the wheels down with a hose whenever the temps are above freezing.

    We recommend cleaning them often and applying carnauba wax a few times throughout the year.

    I'm in FL. and I fish a lot and the trucks are always in the salt water.
    I use Salt-Away after every time I retrieve the boat from the launch ramp or the beach. Keeping salt off is difficult but this stuff removes it quickly.
    Research and look at the various ways to use it on Youtube. In Florida the temps are always warm enough to use at all times.
