Aluminum or steel wheels plated with chrome are beautiful and can significantly change the appearance of your car or truck. If maintained, the chrome finish will produce a brilliant shine. To reflect light, which produces the attractive brilliant finish, the wheels must be cleaned regularly.
- It’s best to clean them with a soft brush, soap and water
- Rinse thoroughly
- After cleaning your wheels do not allow soap, chemicals or water to sit on the surface and produce water spots
- Dry your wheels with a soft, non-abrasive towel
Keep Your Mustang's Wheels Clean: As stated above, it is important to keep wheels clean, not allowing road film, contaminants and brake dust (which retain moisture) to accumulate and sit on the surface. If you live in a harsh winter climate where salt and chemicals are used during the winter, regular cleaning is even more important.
Polish Your Chrome Wheels: Periodically, polish chrome wheels with some quality non-abrasive chrome polish. For best results and to reduce cleaning efforts in the future, after polishing and/or cleaning, apply wax to seal the surface—this should help avoid problems in the future and will reduce static so that your wheels are more resistant to brake dust.
