The things you can use to clean the tires of your car
Keeping your wheels clean is an important part of vehicle maintenance. Here's how to clean your car tires:
1. To clean your car tires, you will need the following: a. Bucket b. Dish soap c. Pressure washer d. Wash mitt e. A Water source 2. Start with a normal wash to get the bulk of the mess off your wheels. Use a pressure washer to blast away the bulk of the dirt on your wheelâ€™s surface. Rinse between your wheels spokes to remove the dirt that collects on the inner rim surface. 3. Fill a bucket with water and add a tablespoon of dish soap per gallon. Dish soap will help remove grease and road oil from the wheel surface. 4. Scrub the face of your rim and tire with the wash mitt. Remove as much of the dirt and road contaminants as possible. Be sure to wipe between the spokes as much as you can with the wash mitt. 5. There can be tough-to remove, stuck-on materials on your rims such as brake dust. Over time, the metallic content in brake dust can rust, discoloring the face of your wheel, perhaps permanently. 6. To clean and protect your rims, you will need the following:
a. Applicator pads b. Clean lint-free cloths c. Water d. Wheel brush e. Wheel cleaner f. Wheel sealant 7. Spray wheel cleaner over the whole surface of one wheel. Work on one wheel at a time, ensuring a complete cleaning without the cleaner drying onto the wheel. 8. Get between the spokes and around the rim bead. The brush will loosen the brake dust and grime on the wheel. Youâ€™ll notice the dirt start to run off the wheel. 9. Rinse the wheel thoroughly with clean water. A pressure washer will help blast away the last bits of dirt on the wheel. 10. Dry the wheel completely with a clean, lint-free cloth. The surface of the wheel should now be completely clean and dry. 11. Dip an applicator pad in the wheel sealant. Wipe the wheel sealant onto the rim liberally, completely coating the face of the wheel. 12. Wipe the dried sealant from the wheel with a clean cloth. The wheel will be shiny and clean, protected from the elements. 13. Apply a tire dressing after every car wash for a deep black color and long-term protection.
14. To condition your tires, you will need the following: a. Wheel applicator pad b. Tire conditioner
15. You can apply the dressing or conditioner directly on the tire as well, though you risk spraying your dressing onto your clean rim.
