    It's best to use a tourqe wrench to tighten the nuts up.
    I can and will definitely this, hopefully this weekend.
    By the way are there any products to DIY fix scuff/scratches on alloys (mainly from kerbs etc) ?

    Not affordably.

    Wheels flex, and get very hot.
    Most home repairs would be lucky to last a week.

    From memory, The Touchup Guys would probably charge less for than $250 for a set of four wheels, and use all the appropriate fillers + paints to make sure the repair bonds permanently.

    Depending on where you are, there is also a shop in Melbourne that does machined/welded repairs and then re-powder coat. The cost is a lot higher there, however.

    Hi guys

    What would be your go-to product to get the baked grime off?

    I've seen Autosmart Tardis come up in a few search posts.

    Would this be safe to use on darker colour alloys and factory painted brake callipers?

    The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.
