Re: spraying rims with diesel fuel to protect from salt

i would spray fluid film spray on them instead. its thicker, sticks better and is actually meant for this. You can get it at most john deere farm stores or online. comes in an aerosol can or bucket.

That is going to do wonders for contaminating brake pads if your not super careful

and Fluid film stinks I wonder if your truck will smell from a distance

Another vote for Fluid Film. It may smell a bit but it's not a bad smell, just odd. But the stuff works. I have used it every year on my 8 year old 4Runner as an undercoat and I have zero rust or other body rot on my vehicle - and that is in Vermont salt and now this brine solution they put down that coats the vehicle white with salt. And it is environmentally friendly and cheap.

Re: spraying rims with diesel fuel to protect from salt

it smells like a Sheep dog I once used to watch the owners told Me the dogs fur was naturally lanolin coated ,, I wonder if Fluid Film is actually Made from lanolin

or Sheep Dogs ?
