Wheels require regular care and cleaning to maintain their original appearance. Please note that warranty claims on finish will be voided if improper maintenance or improper cleaning agents are used.
Typical road dirt traps moisture that can cause corrosion over time. Brake dust, created by braking friction, is corrosive and can cause pitting of the wheel’s finish. Most household cleaning agents are too harsh and must be avoided. Mild dish soap and water is all you need to properly clean your wheels.
Do not use abrasive materials to clean wheels as they can damage the finish. Use caution when cleaning tires with a bristle brush and never use scouring pads. Use caution in automatic car washes because steam cleaners and strong chemicals that are sometimes used can cause permanent staining or corrosion.
We do not recommend cleaning wheels when they are hot. Always allow the wheels time to cool before cleaning with soap and water.

A chrome finish can be cleaned using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal to prevent surface corrosion.
Painted, Machined, and PVD:
Clean a clear-coated finish using mild dish soap and water, then dry with a soft cloth.
Clean a polished aluminum finish using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth. Polished wheels are not clear coated, therefore the appearance may diminish over time unless they receive additional care and maintenance. After cleaning, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal. A specially formulated custom wheel polish and wheel seal is recommended to return shine to oxidized wheels. The finish on polished aluminum wheels is not covered under any warranty.
Clean a chrome finish using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, apply a coat of soft, non-abrasive cream wax or wheel seal to prevent surface corrosion. Surface corrosion, such as pitting, and rust can be prevented with proper care as they are not covered under warranty.
