Wheels and Tyres.

All five wheels were removed and washed in hot soapy water with a stiff brush, then each wheel was pressure washed. The four wheel hubs were also washed in soapy water and pressure washed.

Five new tyres were fitted (Continental MPT81).

Although extensive use was made of an industrial pressure washer it was often found that hot soapy water and a stiff brush worked better. Note the two 10,000kg jacks in use.

Whilst the wheels were removed the hubs were pressure washed both on the front....

...and the rear. A right-angle pressure washer lance was invaluable. Each wheel took about two hours to remove, clean and replace. The spare wheel took about an hour.

Total time about 9 hours.
