If you have alloy wheels, you know they add a far more stylized and polished look than standard steel wheels. To keep that shine, learn how to clean these wheels the right way.
First, What Is Alloy?
Alloy refers to a combination of two or more metals. Most alloy wheels consist of magnesium, nickel and aluminum. Aluminum is far better protected against rusting or corrosion than standard steel wheels, guaranteeing that your investment will stand the test of time.
Next, What About Cleaning?
First, remove dirt and brake dust using your hose with a high-pressure nozzle. Next, spray the wheel with an alloy wheel cleaner. You can purchase these at your local auto shop. They’re non-acidic to protect the wheel’s polish. Only spray one wheel at a time. Using a soft-bristle brush, scrub away any remaining dirt, then rinse the wheels and towel dry.
Finally, How Do I Make Them Shine?
Some people wash and wax their wheels using the same wax they use for the rest of the car. Others use a premium metal wax. Either works fine; just be prepared to do a lot of rubbing for the shine to manifest.
