Wheel Pitting Empty
PostSubject: Wheel Pitting   Wheel Pitting I_icon_minitimeMon Mar 18, 2013 8:46 pm

Several years ago I purchased an 04 Silverwing. The previous owner had put into the tires Ride On. The Ride On has caused the wheels to corrode and pit on the inside and has caused the tires to have slow leaks. I was able to sand the slight rusting off of the inside of the wheel, however is there a way to stop the pitting or is there a way to repair the pitting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would do a ruff sanding with coarse sand paper then apply a clear coat rock guard protection on the inside of the rim.This works great to seal a MC spoke rim in order to instal a tubeless tire. The air contact to the rim can cause some pitting.Then install tire balancing ceramic beads 2 once pack.

Sorry to hear but are you sure it was the Ride-On product as they state it does not cause corrosion. (I've got it in mine silent )

http://www.ride-on-uk.com/cms.php?id_cms=9

Q: Does Ride-On Tyre Protection System react chemically with the tyres or wheels?

A: No. Ride-On (TPS) tyre sealant is chemically inert, and will not attack the tyre or wheels. Ride-On (TPS) contains corrosion inhibitors that protect steel and aluminum wheels and tyre belts against corrosion. Ride-On (TPS) tyre sealant can be easily washed out of tyres with water. It will not affect the future use of patches or other tyre repairs if necessary. Ride-On (TPS) will actually help preserve the tyre casing, making retreads more effective.


I hope Tinmans suggestion works for you.

I use ride on=no problems. Two reasons I have no trouble (if it could come) #1 my tires/rims are opened up at least twice a year with tire changes as I ride a lot

#2 I deal only with new scooters, so know their history

And #3 I do own tire work and can look in mirror to see the person who screwed it up-----rather than some pick up driving mech in dealership.

Pitting on inside of rim----does it hurt anything?? Probably not as long was sealing surface on rim ok

And last-----tires get old from sitting around-----more than 3 yrs old I would throw out

It's more likely a rim defect in the casting. When buying used no one no's what the previous owner did to the rim.

I repair alloy wheels on cars, and tbh most of the porosity that causes air pressure loss is due either to corrosion occuring inside the rim where the bead of the tyre seals against the wheel, or from the valve core not being tightened properly when a new tyre has been fitted.

I've used such puncture sealants before, and in all honesty, it coats the treaded area of the tyre, and keeps well away from the sidewall and the wheel itself.

HTH,

Paul
