wheel care

Take care of your newly repaired or reconditioned wheels with care, especially for the first 24 hours. They will be dry when you touch them, but avoid rubbing them.

Should you encounter a light rain or brief period of wetness, this should not damage your wheels, however, a great deal of rain, direct spray or continued immersion can damage the newly applied clear coat.

The newly applied clear coat will be fully cured in approximately 4 weeks. After that time, regular wheel maintenance will be necessary in order to maintain the new appearance over a long period of time. In order to maintain your wheels correctly, we offer the same criteria as the manufacturers of premium wheels.

Cleaning recommendations

• Do not wash freshly reconditioned wheels for 24 hours.

 

• After 24 hours, You can wash the wheels by hand and continue to wash the wheels by hand only for the first 4 weeks.

 

• Cool hot wheels always with plain water before using soap. Never wash your newly reconditioned wheels when they are hot. Road salt, dirt and brake dust must be washed off thoroughly; otherwise, the finish of the wheel may corrode or become damaged.

 

• Do not use any cleaner or wax on newly reconditioned wheels for 4 weeks.

 

• After 4 weeks and after washing again, you can use an acid-free cleaning agent on the wheels. Using a cleaner that uses acid will damage the clearcoat.

 

• Also after 4 weeks, a good wax should be applied to the clearcoat and continue to do so about every three months. The wax will help protect the skin of the clearcoat from debris and foreign substance build-up.

 

• Using abrasive polish or other abrasive agents should never be used. Should the protective top layer of the clearcoat become damaged, it should be repaired immediately.
