Suzuki Swift alloysMotorists who use alloy wheel cleaners and stain removers could help to maintain their rims for longer.

According to a post by Ouptike on the Great Quality Alloy Wheel blog, washing the wheels regularly and using dedicated products can keep them in top condition.

There are steps drivers should avoid, however, with abrasive items such as wire wool or steel wool unsuitable as they can cause damage.

Specific alloy wheel cleaners should be used in place of other substances, such as acid solutions, while hard tyre brushes must also be avoided as they can harm the rims, the writer added.
