Help With Wheels

Recommended Posts

Aluminium Wheel Polishing:

Uncoated (to test apply a mild polish, if the applicator turns black there is no clear coat or paint finish) magnesium or aluminium wheels can be polished with a water-soluble polish (Semichrome, Iz™ einszett Metal Polish “Chrompflege”) For difficult to reach places use a felt polishing cone on an electric drill (Groit's Felt Polishing Cone Set)

Cleaning Wheels (clear coated)and Tyres:

·Ensure wheels and rotors are cool before applying cold water as this may cause the rotors warp. Hose off as much initial grime as you can. Rinse up into the wheel well to wash away road kill, mud and other debris.

·Use detailing clay to remove any imbedded contaminants

·Use a solvent based cleaner to remove any road tar

·Apply a solution of P21S Total Auto Wash to wheel-wells and tyres, and let soak in, agitate with a long-handled boars haired brush before rinsing

·Spray P21S Wheel Cleaner, this cleaner is 100% acid-free and will not damage any type of wheel finish. (Gel for badly soiled and regular for normal soil) onto wheel rims and lat soak in.

·Before finally removing cleaner, agitate with a soft brush and then rinse off

·Rinse wheel surface thoroughly with clean water (to avoid splashing paint surface rise by pouring a bucket of water over each wheel from the top down

·Dry wheels with a towel, apply a sealant to the surface of the wheels themselves will protect the finish from brake dust and the elements and also making them easier to keep clean.

·Wax has a low melting point and will not withstand the sustained temperatures

·Clean tyres with a rubber cleaner (3M Tire & Wheel Cleaner -39036) or a citrus-based APC (P21S Total Auto Wash)

·Apply a polymer-based tyre dressing (Zaino Z-16 Perfect Tire Gloss™)

Thoroughly hose off tyres and wheel-wells, apply a (UVR) protection to the tyres.
