Custom Wheel Care Tips
Clean your wheel with soft liquid soap. Simply pour the soap into a bucket of warm water. Liquid soap is nonabrasive and will not scratch your wheel. It will clean your grease, dirt, and break the dust.
After thoroughly rinsing your wheel, dry it with only a soft material such as a t-shirt or terry cloth towel.
Regularly maintain your wheel. Regular maintenance is important so the build up on your wheel will not be too thick.
If you do not feel like washing your own car use a touch-less hand car wash. Water and soap is sprayed and your car is blow dried. Because touch-less car washes do not use any type of abrasive material on your chrome wheel they provide a gentle cleaning of your wheels.
If you there is salt on the highways where you live you must pay close attention to cleaning your wheels. Salt can deteriorate and corrode your chrome.
Custom Wheel Care Dont's
Do not use special chemical-type cleaner. The chemical will stain the chrome.
Never run your car through a machine car wash -the chrome on your wheels will fade if machine cleaned.
The brushes spin and have a mild abrasive that is used to get the dirt of the wheels. The harsh brush and mild abrasive will be certain to scrape your wheels.
Heavy cloth is used on the wheel. You should never use anything heavy or rough to clean your wheels.
A very mild abrasive is also used both in the cloth and in the soap that will be certain to cause your wheels to scratch.
Do not use anything harsh such as a scrub brush. This will scrape your wheels.
Do not wash your wheels after you have driven your car a long distance. When you drive your car the metal gets hot. Spraying cool water on a hot metal surface will cause your chrome to crack.
No matter where you live you must always be certain to maintain constant care of your Wheels. By following this advice and properly getting rid of the collected dust and dirt on your chrome wheels you can be certain to maintain the high quality of your custom wheels.
