Caring for your Alloy Wheels
- When you’ve just got your wheels, give them a hundred miles or so to bed in.
- Doing things slowly to start with will give you the maximum grip and performance.
- Those good-looking alloys need to be washed down every week, but avoid an acid based cleaner and (worse of all) no mechanical cleaning.
- Don’t allow grime, brake dust or grit to build up your wheels or they will lose their high finish.
- Although you can use your alloys all year round, it’s always beneficial to use your original non alloy wheels in the winter months, especially if you have a high gloss or ‘hyper’ finish.
- The salt on the roads can be highly corrosive and the degradation in road conditions, such as pot holes, can lead to serious and extensive damage.
