18XL How to clean mud from inner shell?


Recommended Posts

I live on a farm and made the poor decision of riding in the rain through some dirt and now the whole inner shell is caked with mud and it scrapes and grinds the wheel. It is a high mileage wheel I just got used so I am hesitant to soak up into the shell area in case it isn't fully sealed.

Any tips?

Personally, I'd keep everything dry if possible, less of a mess (wet mud will just distribute instead of fall out) and no water intrusion danger.

I agree with you, if you are able rotate the tire. In my case, it was completely blocked and did not move at all. It was a nightmare, and then I had to use water or fully open the wheel.
