DIY - Wheels turning device - The easy way to detail your rims

Hi folks,
some months ago i build an little detailing-helper ....
Winter is comming, time to prepare the wheels.

I hate to wash and clean our wheels on the ground, so my idea was to use an empty Trashcan as a stand.
Worked ok, the wheel stand up and i could walk around - but i had to lift the wheel up every time i want to turn it.


I liked the advantages of the trashcan-stand,
So i took some wood leftovers, 2 larger idlers and a smaller one.
Drill / saw here and there, fiddle about a bit and there it was:



Back support. Now i could even use a pressure wash to rins the wheel of.



255/35 R20 tires fit, but even wider tires are no problem, they stick out of my construction.





clean and turn





Cleaning, polishing (not this time) and coating. Works well.






Keep the "Titan mate" finish of the rims clean is not longer a problem, my new company car eats breakpads to breakfast

The Porsche 997 GT3 RS green got Gtechniq Crystal Serum and EXOv3
