When properly cleaned and polished, aluminum wheels can shine with chrome-like beauty. Proper maintenance of your aluminum wheels is important, to avoid pitting and corrosion caused by accumulation of dirt and contaminants like brake dust. Brake dust is comprised of carbon fibers that rub off the brake pad, as well as tiny metal shavings from the rotor which can do damage to the surface of your wheels. You can prevent this and keep your aluminum wheels looking great with frequent cleaning, using Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner.
Bare aluminum has a tendency to oxidize. Most aluminum wheels have a protective coating on top to prevent aluminum oxide. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner won't harm this coating, so you can use it for both coated and bare aluminum wheels.
Only clean wheels when they're cool to avoid warping rotors, brake discs and more.
