Pro­tect your wheels

Fast Car - - Lifestyle -

Think about it. We spend all this time lov­ingly pol­ish­ing and seal­ing our paint­work, but most of us will still ad­mit to slap­ping a bit of wheel cleaner on our hoops, wash­ing ’em off, and that’s about it. The trouble is, with all the grime and cor­ro­sive brake dust fly­ing about, it’s prob­a­bly our rims that need the most pro­tec­tion of all.

Gen­er­ally wheel sur­faces are painted or lac­quered too, so a good coat of tough wheel wax or a spe­cial­ist sealant will never go amiss. I know it’s ridicu­lously ex­cit­ing when we get new brand wheels and we can never wait to whack ’em straight on, but it’s good prac­tice to give them a good go­ing over, in­side and out, first. They’ll cer­tainly stay in good con­di­tion for longer.
