Snow Chains

I have a 2004 Astro AWD with all season tires. It's not practical for me to buy snow tires because I won't be spending a lot of time in the snow and another set of tires and rims are more $$ than I have. I'd like to hear from people who have experience with using tire chains on Astro/Safaris. What b...

Corroded Rims

My 2004 Astro has corroded spots on some otherwise nice looking aluminum rims. ASTRO 017.jpg The rims are coated with some kind of clear coat that has broken loose and flaked off on the corroded spots. Has anyone had any luck polishing out the corroded spots and renewing the clear coat? Thanks, John
