Alloy Wheel Cleaners
Alloy wheel cleaners
There is a good reason why alloy wheels are cherished by so many petrolheads. Alloy wheels are to cars what a smart pair of shoes are to an outfit. You can drive the most handsome car in the world but if the wheels are not right then it simply won't have the effect you want it to. So, alloy wheels are important, but they must be kept clean. That is where alloy wheels cleaners come in. This is one of the most important car exterior care products you can buy. The wheels take more abuse than most other parts of the car, meaning alloy wheel cleaners are essential to maintaining their shine and quality.
Alloy wheel cleaners: What do I need?
At Performance Motorcare, we have an extensive range of alloy wheel cleaners available. We have products such as P21S Liquid Wheel Cleaner, which will put a shine on even the most neglected of alloy wheels.
Another alloy wheel cleaner you may find restores the shine that you once had is Meguiars Hot Rims Wheel Cleaner, which has the added advantage of being suitable to use on all wheel types, including split rims, polished alloys and chrome finishes.
Sonax Wheel Cleaner is another option. This car exterior cleaning product is acid free and uses an intensive gel formula to remove even the most stubborn grime from your rims.
So there are a number of alloy wheel cleaners on the market today, however, some drivers mistakenly believe that a bucket of soapy water will do the trick. This is not true. While it may remove dust and loose dirt, a bucket of soapy water will not clean to the same level as specific alloy wheel cleaners.
As well as removing dirt, alloy wheel cleaners protect the metal against various elements which can scratch and decolour them. Soapy water does not achieve this.
If you want your alloys to look the way they were intended, you need to invest in dedicated alloy wheel cleaners which feature the right chemical balances to get rid of grime.
Alloy wheel cleaners: Use them properly
When alloy wheel cleaners are used properly, the results speak for themselves. After using alloy wheel cleaners, your rims will look as shiny and new as they did the day they left the showroom.
While using alloy wheel cleaners however, a certain degree of caution must be exercised. The reason why alloy wheel cleaners are so effective at removing mud and dirt is that they feature various different chemicals which are designed to destroy the dirt without damaging the alloys or you.
You should read the instructions carefully to be on the safe side and to get the best results from your alloy wheel cleaner.
