    Rear Wheels Seizing?

    When i was changing my wheels not so long ago, when i tried to remove the rear ones they would hardly budge at times, they took alot of effort to remove them.

    Someone suggested using copper grease around the centre to stop this happening, would this work & it wont do any harm will it?

    Yes, a light smearing of copper grease will help prevent seizing in the future, also give the hub faces a smear after gently wire brushing them to remove any corrosion.
    This will not cause any problems.

    Put copper grease on the hub ( dont get any on the disc )

    We put this on all are customers veichles, even on the threads of the wheel bolts.

    never had any probs afterwards
