Set of wheels are the gimmicks that makes style statement on behalf of a car. And in a league to make that more worthy, alloys should be well preserved and must be in the pristine condition always. Mentioned here are some tips to keep those spanking chunk of metal commenting about your attitude. In fact, there is no shy in saying that most of the car buyers in India look down to alloys first and then the car.
No one likes a dirty car, and dirty alloys are a strict no. Front wheels happen to appear dirtier than the rear ones due to filth passed from disc brakes. All the dirt residues are meant to be removed within a short interval, as leaving them for a long will tarnish the finish. Warm water, detergent and soft cloth are the best apparatus to cure them. Harsh brushing must be avoided, if felt necessary bug and tar remover too can be used.
Steam cleaning isn’t recommended at all. The same may damage the finish on alloys like it used to do when washing them hot. Pouring water on hot alloys will lead soap stricken to it.
Always use the different sponge on the alloys and on the body. The dirt collected from the alloys can damage the paint.
Now, at the time of spanking it with the finishing job, apply wax or clear coat to maintain it as a shield from the dust and others.
Apart from the dirt and other substances kerb also poses a threat to it, always recommended to stay away from them. In the recent past some Smart Alex of the aftermarket had developed inserts for them which can be applied to avoid chipping.
Hence, the wheels are those which are nearest to the road after the tyres so they pose a greater risk of bruises. Maintaining them shows how much your respect your vehicle, just like the way a pair of shoes poses a status quo to a man’s attire. So, take that extra time and walk an extra mile to care for the wheels whether they are of steel or alloys.
