New Porsches come with aluminum hubs so rust is not an issue. On older models, however, the wheel hubs are steel and therefore prone to rust. For a few bucks and a little time you can make a significant improvement to the appearance of your wheels and tires. Start by jacking up the car and remove the tire. Use a wire brush to sand and then clean the hub Fantastic or other cleaner. Mask off the body to protect from any over spray and cover the calipers with a plastic bag. Any auto parts store will carry header paint for a few bucks. Once their clean and dry, spray paint the hubs (maybe more than once since the paint dries quickly). What a visible difference this makes to the appearance of your Porsche!

Before: After:

They may need to be refreshed every couple of years, but even if you never repaint them, they will still look better than just plain rust.

Hi David!  I thought I was the only "car nerd" that worried about rusty brake rotor hats.  Great article!  Thanks for sharing!  --Manny
