** Special Tips for Maintaining Your freshly finished Wheel
Treat your freshly reconditioned wheels with care, especially for the first 24 hours. They will be dry to the touch, but you should not rub them.
The clear coat will be fully cured in approximately 30-60 days depending on the season (60 days in cooler weather). In order to maintain your wheels correctly we offer the same advice as do the manufacturers of premium wheels.
These recommendations are as follows:
- Do not wash freshly reconditioned wheels for 7-10 days.
- After 7-10 days and wash the wheels by hand frequently. For the first 4-8 weeks use something as mild as dish soap, a soft kitchen sponge and a garden hose (no pressure) for rinsing.
- Avoid carwashes and pressure washers until the wheels are fully cured 30-60 days.
- Always cool hot wheels with plain water before using soap. Never wash wheels with soap when they are hot. Road salt, dirt and brake dust must be washed off thoroughly; otherwise the finish of the wheel may corrode.
- Do not use any cleaner or wax on freshly reconditioned wheels for 4-8 weeks.
- After 4-8 weeks car wax can be applied to the wheels. Wax will help protect the skin of the clearcoat from foreign matter build-up.
- Never use abrasives or acids to clean your wheels. If you would not put the product on your fender don’t use it on your wheels!! Should the protective layer of the clearcoat become damaged, it should be repaired immediately to prevent further damage.
***Did you know that the average wheel rotates over 700 times in one mile?? A bent wheel sends constant damaging vibrations to :
- Ball joints
- Control arms, etc over 700 times in one mile!
