• Wheels should be cleaned by hand regularly to remove contaminants like road grime, salt, ice/snow melting, chemical, dirt, and brake dust.
• Auto/touch-free car washes do not completely remove contaminants and can cause harm to the finish; hand washing is highly recommended.
• Many areas of the country use road salts and chemicals during the winter months that can cause adverse effects on your wheels; it is recommended to clean more frequently during this season. Failure to do so may greatly reduce the life of the product.
• Avoid using automatic car washes as the cleaning agents and brushes used to clean tires can damage the wheel surface.
• Never wash your wheels when they are still hot from driving. Do not attempt to cool hot wheels with water as this may cause damage to the finish and can warp the brake rotors and/or drums.
• For PVD and Chrome plated wheels, clean by applying a simple cleaning solution such as mild dish soap and water, and then dry with a soft cloth. For Chrome finish, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal to help prevent surface corrosion.
