Default Which Is The Best Way To Clean Alloy Wheels?

Hi,

Im sure that this is one of the most important questions anyone would ask, especially those who have installed a good set of alloy wheels on their car and even more importantly, those who have chrome alloy wheels.

I have a set of the 35th Anniversary Special Edition OZ Racing Canova on my Swift Vxi. They have the crystal titanium finish. When the car is washed in the morning, i make sure that the guy washing it washes the wheels well and not only throw water on them like they usually do. I also make sure that the rims are wiped dry as if not, water spots appear on the rims and it looks pathetic. Now, obviously the 'wipe it dry' method is effictive but not the best method to keep your wheels sparkling clean.

So is there any polish/wax avaliable inorder to keep the wheels sparkling clean keeping in ind the finish of the wheels. OZ Racing has given me a manual which says that certain additives in wheel polish/wax available in the market can damage the finish of the wheels.

Kindly advise.

You'll get a good choice of wheel cleaner in the market. SONAX is one available everywhere.

Apart from that go through this.

We advice you to use the search function.
