How do I clean the alloy wheels?
It’s important that you care for your car’s alloy wheels – dirt, grime, tar and other problems can leave them looking rough. Here’s how to ensure that they stay in good shape:
Use a soft sponge.
Use a mild soap.
Don’t use a hard-bristled brush, as it may scratch the wheels.
Do not use acidic cleansers (it can damage the clearcoat on the wheels).
Don’t wash the wheels if they are hot from driving or exposure to sunlight.
Wash your wheels thoroughly after driving in the winter to remove road salt, which can etch the metal.
