Is there a product that will prevent wheels seizing to hubs?
Can you recommend any product that will protect aluminium wheels against the effects of the metal in brake dust on new wheels? On my last Volvo three of the four wheels had seized onto their hubs due to electrolytic corrosion between the hubs and wheels. I tried to e-mail Volvo to suggest that they zinc coated one of the mating faces to prevent this happening but was unable to contact them. This is standard practice in the aircraft industry.
I use Copperease grease. Frowned upon by the aeronautical industry, in a car this creates a sacrificial anode that stops the alloy wheels fusing to the cast iron hubs.
