Changing Tyres: Can kicking the tyres be avoided? in The Workshop Posted December 2, 2009 · Report reply I have steel rims, no alloys. There is rusting around the bolts, pretty much a pattern which goes in a circle minus the bolts. Almost seems as if the rust patch is exactly where the rim meets the brakepad (?). I live in Lajpat Nagar which has a mini car market and off late, I've seen more and more people getting the same part painted. Maybe it's more than just ornamental. How much would that set me back by? Estimates?
