Below, is a nice overview pertaining to wheel care for all those who purchase wheels from us.

Wheels require simple, regular care to maintain their factory appearance. Please note that warranty claims on certain wheel finishes will be voided if improper maintenance or improper cleaning agents are used.

Mild dish soap and water is a product everyone has in their arsenal, which is all you need to properly clean your wheels if you do not have avwheel cleaning product handy. Typical road dirt traps moisture that, over a period of time, can cause corrosion. Brake dust, created by braking friction, is corrosive and can cause pitting of the wheel’s finish. Most household cleaning agents are too harsh and must be avoided.

Care for the finish of your wheels the way you would care for the finish of your car. A microfiber towel and/or soft brush is perfect for wheel cleaning. Do not use abrasive materials to clean wheels as they can damage the finish. Use caution when cleaning tires with a bristle brush and never use scouring pads. Use caution in automatic car washes because steam cleaners and strong chemicals that are sometimes used can cause permanent staining or corrosion.

Never clean wheels when they are hot. Always allow wheels time to cool before cleaning with soap and water. Never spray cold water on extremely hot wheels.

If you have questions, please email or call us in-store and we will be happy to consult you.

PVD coated:

Polished aluminum:

Clean a polished aluminum finish using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth. The appearance of polished wheels (that are not clear coated) will diminish over time unless they receive additional care and maintenance. After cleaning, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal. A specially formulated custom wheel polish and wheel seal is recommended tovreturn shine to oxidized wheels. The finish on polished aluminum wheels is not covered under any warranty.

Chrome-plated steel:

Clean a chrome finish using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal to prevent surface corrosion. Surface corrosion and rust can be prevented with proper care and is not covered under any warranty.

If you hit a hard object (e.g. curb, pothole) or have an accident, always have your wheels inspected by a Wheel Pros retailer. If any damage is found, replace the wheel immediately.
