Caring For Your Wheels
Cleaning your wheels is important, especially for polished, glossy, or chrome finishes. If not properly cleaned, heat from the sun or your vehicle's brakes can eventually bake contaminants into the finish on your wheels, making it difficult or impossible to clean them.
√ Treat your wheels as you would treat your vehicle's paint. Clean one wheel at a time, using a mild soap with water and a soft sponge or cloth to gently scrub away dirt and brake dust. Rinse immediately with clean water and dry with a soft cloth to avoid dried soap or water spots. If desired, apply a wax to to help repel water and contaminants. Wheel wax can be obtained at JustForWheels.
√ Never use chemicals cleaners, degreasers, or abrasives to clean your wheels; they will only damage the finish.
√ Avoid automatic car-washes; the finish on your wheels could be damaged by rough brushes, metal guide rails, or pressure washing.
