Why Clean Wheels & Tires Are Important & Tips to Properly Clean Them

Proper vehicle maintenance isn't just keeping your fluids changed and topped off. Keeping certain components of your vehicle clean will help lengthen its life as much as regular maintenance, and your tires are no exception.

Clean tires aren't just for show; brake dust can get onto your tires and eat away at the protective coating and pit the metal. The makings of brake dust plus the heat and friction of your tires ultimately equals disaster.

When you're washing your car, start with the wheels and tires; use a cleaner that is approved for your specific type of wheel. Clean one set at a time to prevent the cleaner from drying, then rinse with a powerful jet of water. Drying and using a wheel protectant on each wheel is also important.
