So you’ve had your alloys refurbished or repaired by Diamond Alloys and they look great, however every day wear and tear from brake dust will eventually make them lose their lustre. Maintaining your alloys will help to prevent this corrosion and will keep your alloys looking great in top condition for much longer.
You’ll want to get yourself a sponge, a lot of water and plenty of elbow grease because cleaning by hand will always give you the best results at home, ‘spray on’ cleaners may not be sufficient if you have a lot of brake dust built up. Take each wheel one at a time, apply wheel cleaner following the manufacturer’s instructions and then sponge clean the alloy, make sure you work it all over the alloy. After this wash the wheel off with plenty of water and a clean wet sponge and then immediately dry the alloy off with a towel to prevent water spots from forming.
If you want to go the extra mile for your alloys, apply some auto wax to the rims once they are dry and then buff away with a dry towel. This will give your alloys an extra shine and give you some slight extra protection from brake dust.
A little TLC for your alloys can go a long way, keeping them sparkling and also prolonging their life. So make the time for a little wheel maintenance in your schedule.
