After washing my C7 and it isn't driven for several days the wheels will not turn
The wheels just skid for several yards after washing and the car sets without
moving the car for several days.
Way too much tire shine/dressing
hubs got oxide.. u gotta find a good grease to withstand high temp to apply . lithium or silicon?
Factory set up? Aftermarket tires and rims? or tires? The rims and tires should be tight and not give. What this sounds like is you have 18 inch rims and 19 inch tires. Also you need to figure out if you are using the incorrect dressing on the rims/tires. Does your Corvette have two different size rims? 18 front and 19 rear> Perhaps if you got new tires, someone didn't realize the size difference and put on one size on both sets of rims? Get the car to a tire shop and have them removed and inspect the rims. Use an emery brush or very light metal brush to scrape any and all junk from the rims. Clean them with a cleaner that will not leave residue on the rims. Dawn soap and hot water will work. Next attack the tires where they make contact with the inner rim and scrub, clean and scuff them so there is a binding contact with the rim. Also check to see if you have the correct tires on the rims as far as size go. Too large and they will slip. Too small and you need a huge sledge hammer to get them on if you can. Just right and any tire mounting machine will pop them on. Perhaps someone who mounted the tires didn't have the proper machine or did it by hand and used something like WD-40 to slip them on easier? You get lousy milage the way it's set up now buddy.
Rusty brake rotors?
Rusty brake rotors on a C-7? The tires if tight still should move with the rims. It really sounds like the incorrect size tire on the rims. My 69 sat four a lot of years without moving, and no rusty breaks or voters stopped the rims and tires from moving together. Maybe the tires were designed for a Ford and the Chevy rims rejected them. Rims made in Mexico, tires in Europe, SouthEast Asia, or Canada and expected to work in the US of A?
