Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Rims
Chrome Steel Wheels – Surface corrosion or rust can be prevented with proper care and is not usually covered under any warranty. NOTE: This does not apply to clear-coated chrome plated steel wheels. Clean with mild dish soap and water and dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, always apply a coat of soft nonabrasive cream wax to prevent surface corrosion.
Clear Coated Aluminum Wheels – Clean with mild dish soap and water and dry with a soft cloth.
Polished Aluminum Wheels – The finish on polished wheels is not covered under any warranty. This type of non-clear coated wheel finish requires additional care and maintenance to keep the luxurious factory shine. The finish will diminish naturally without proper and constant maintenance. Polished wheels should be cleaned with mild soap and water and dried with a soft cloth. Then use a good quality custom wheel polish and wheel seal to bring back the shine to oxidized wheels. The wheel seal is an effective brake dust-releasing agent and will reduce polishing frequency. (Do not use on clear-coated wheels!)
Chrome Plated Aluminum Wheels – Clean with mild dish soap and water and dry with a soft cloth. Use a premium grade Custom Wheel seal to reduce cleaning frequency and protect the chromed wheel surface. Mustang TechCategories:
