Anyone know about the need to run a silicone ring between the wheel 'centre' and the wheel 'rim' on Sunraysia wheels??
Supposed to have something to do with stopping rust at the welds??

Have not heard of this problem, but hope an authoritive answer is forthcoming from some knowledgeable person as I have two vehicles and a camper trailer with Sunraysia wheels.

Cheers

Yeah mate. The Silicone rings are starting to fall to pieces. They are ROH trek 2's. I aslo noticed that they hold the red dirt under them which annoys me as I like to clean my car and I have black rims.

I don't think genuine Sunraysias have been on the market for years.
ROH Trak2 rims have the silicone seal, but it's pretty crappy....in keeping with the quality of the rest of the wheel :(

Signman,

The silicone ring is to stop rust and for appearance

Yep, did it to mine when new.

Helps to stop water entering between the rim and centre hub, and future rust problems. Especially if you do some beach driving.

Also let some antirust soak in before silicon applied.

Did that to one of my wheel sets , just have to use neutral cure roof/gutter type silicon.

Can also get it in black and also white.

have been doing it for years, works fine especially if you do a lot of beach driving, although you have to redo it every now and then.....cheers dingo
