When you spend good money on a new set of rims and tires for your truck, SUV, or car, you want them to look great for as long as possible. With a little bit of knowledge and a little elbow grease, you can keep your wheels shining and your tires looking black and slick for a number of years. As your supplier for affordable and high-quality tires and wheels from the best manufacturers, Tyres Gator has a few easy-to-follow tips that will make wheel and tire care fast and easy.

Keep Them Clean

One of the most important courses of action you can take to keep your wheels and tires safe and nice to look at is to clean them frequently. While modern rims and tires are built from exceptionally strong materials, heavy exposure to the elements will eventually cause damage. Everything from the sun to dust and dirt blown around by the wind can have negative consequences that will shorten the life of your tires and wheels. Even if you don’t take your vehicle through the car wash every week, if you notice that they’re getting dirty from the elements or they’re sporting a decent coat of brake dust, wipe them off with a soft cloth.

Wax Those Wheels

If you just bought a new car or a new set of rims, apply a thin coat of wax to create an effective protective barrier that will also add a wonderful shine. Modern wheels, especially alloy wheels, are frequently painted or powder-coated and then clear-coated. While the clear coat is a nice aesthetic choice, it also helps protect your new wheels from damage. Wax creates another layer between the world and your wheels.

Keep it Simple!

While there are dozens or even hundreds of different products out there that are marketed as being the best way to care for your rims, the truth is that you don’t need much more than warm water and mild soap to keep those rims sparkling. Make Saturday morning the time that you wash your rims with a solution of soap and water and you’ll be surprised at how great your wheels look.
