If you love your car, chances are, you'll take good care of it. You’ll wash it every week, clean the windows, and then dry it with a towel. You'll also clean out the interiors and vacuum the seats. If you do all that, then you're a good car owner. On the other hand, you should not neglect the condition of your car’s wheels either. Among all vehicular components, your wheels are the most exposed to the elements. That's especially true if you travel off-road frequently.

Thus, it's important to take good care of your wheels. It takes a degree of care to ensure that your wheels are properly cleaned and maintained. What is the best way to accomplish this? First, apply a coat of wax to protect your wheels. The finish of your wheels is as important as that of your entire car, so treat them equally well. Use soapy water to clean your wheels.

If your car has gone through roads ridden with tar and asphalt, try not to use special liquids like tar removers. They can cause permanent stains on your wheels. Also, don't use polishing solutions or abrasive cleaners as they might do the same. If your wheels are hot after a long drive, don't have them cleaned yet. If you do, the soap solution might dry up fast and also leave stains. Instead, let them cool down first, just like you should let your car's engine cool down if it overheats.

Clean the wheels one at a time. You need to thoroughly wash away all the dirt and grime from the wheels San Diego cars have. If you're using a hose, utilize it to its full strength to rinse off any dried mud. Then, you can apply your solution, scrub it, and then rinse it off.

How about automatic car washes? Before taking your car to the auto car wash, it might be a good idea to ask the employees what equipment, materials and processes they use. You might be shocked to know that some remove grime and dirt by actually using acid cleaners, either during or right before the washing. Some even use stiff brushes. These can ruin the finish of your wheels. You should ask about their cleaning agents before putting your car and San Diego wheels through their system to avoid any issues.

Finally, you should clean your wheels regularly. This is especially important if you travel off-road regularly as the wheels may wear off more quickly than other parts of your car due to the rough terrain. Also, don’t forget to look for OEM wheels in San Diego when looking for replacements.
