You just purchased a set of brand new wheels or rims and you need to know the proper wheel care techniques to make sure that they look as good as they did on day one when they were installed. It’s pretty simple will be well worth all of the effort.
Regarding proper wheel care, you will want to make sure to start out with the wheels being cooled off from the last time you drove before you wash them. This will help ensure that the wheels and tires don’t dry too quickly leaving film, or water spots on the wheels after washing. Many wheels come with painted elements on them, and just like your car if you want to retain the look of the wheel you should take good care of them. Wheels are the dirtiest part of the car since they are closest to the roads where anything can be kicked up onto the wheels leaving them with tar,dirt, dust, and other unwanted items that will keep your wheels from looking good.
When washing your wheels, you will also want to make sure that you use mild soap without harsh abrasives in the soap to make sure that you don’t scratch, dull, or leave a film on your wheels. Another type of soap you could use on the wheels is one that is helpful in removing tar. You will want to wash your vehicle and wheels often to keep the wheels looking as good as they did when you purchased them. Also, by applying a layer of wax on them while detailing your car, this will help protect your wheels.
Be aware of automatic car washes and car detailing shops. They can use soaps that have a bit of acid in them to help break down dirt, grease and grime which will make your wheels dull faster and take off that nice clear coat that are on the wheels when you purchase them. They also can use stiff brushes to clean wheels and tires which can scratch your wheels and make them wear a lot faster and loose that nice look that they once had when they were originally purchased.
