Diamond cut alloy wheels are a popular choice for car enthusiasts looking to enhance the appearance of their vehicle, however, it's important to note that they are also more prone to corrosion than powder coated alloy wheels. This is because the diamond cutting process leaves the surface of the wheel more exposed, making it more susceptible to rust and corrosion.

Alright, so you've finally decided to upgrade those drab steel wheels to some shiny new alloy ones. But wait, how do you keep those bad boys looking fresh and new? Well, fear not my friend, because we've got you covered with some tips and tricks on how to properly clean and maintain your alloy wheels.
First things first, let's talk about the don'ts. Don't, we repeat, don't use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials to clean your alloy wheels. This can damage the finish and make them more susceptible to rust and corrosion. And for the love of all things shiny, don't power wash your wheels! The high pressure can blast away the protective clear coat and leave your wheels looking worse than before.
Now, onto the dos. Do use a mild detergent and a soft brush to gently scrub away dirt and grime. And for those tough to reach areas, a toothbrush can come in handy. After cleaning, make sure to rinse the wheels thoroughly with water and dry them off with a microfiber cloth.

There’s no escaping the fact that the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are falling here in the UK. With that in mind, now is the perfect time to give your car or van the once-over to make sure it’s ready for winter.
One of the best places to start is with the wheels, and more specifically your tyres. Etyres recently suggested that now is the ideal time to think about fitting all-season or winter tyres to your vehicle to improve your safety on the road.
Winter tyres are designed to perform at their best in cold conditions, so if you live in the north of the UK they are likely to be very useful.
Even if you’re not planning to swap your tyres, you should at the very least check their condition before the cold weather starts in earnest. According to Mix96, you s

If you're a lover of new UK alloy wheels, you'll undoubtedly have a nemesis on the roads when it comes to driving your car – potholes. A study commissioned by car insurer Confused.com has revealed that more than a million potholes were reported to the council in 2016, thanks to a Freedom of Information request sent to 412 local councils, according to AOL.
The research also found that 33 per cent of drivers have suffered damage to their vehicles in the past year thanks to poor road surfaces, affecting tyres, suspension and alloys.
Local councils blame central government for not giving enough funding to repair road damage, however, a government spokesperson replied to say they were being adequately funded:: "Year on year, the Department for Transport is providing

Drivers of modified diesel cars are being warned against a specific modification that could see them face a fine if caught.
According to an investigation by the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), thousands of motorists across the UK are driving diesel cars that have been modified to remove the pollution exhaust filter - an expensive part to replace, the Express reports.
Removing the filter costs just a couple of hundred pounds and the process is not illegal, however, driving around in a diesel car without a filter is against the law.
Since 2014, 1,800 cars have been found to have had their pollution filters removed. Drivers of diesel cars can be fined up to £1,000 if caught, while van drivers could be made to shell out up to £2,500.
Vehicles manufactured since 2009 must have a diesel particulate

If you’ve just bought alloy wheels online, you’re sure to know just how expensive they can be – which is why they’re often such attractive prospects to thieves. This is why you need to do all you can to ensure your alloys are properly protected or you could find you have to make a hefty insurance claim, losing your no-claims bonus into the bargain.
Unfortunately, alloys are relatively easy to pinch and almost impossible for the police to trace once they’re gone. It’s easier nowadays for thieves to make off with your alloys and not the actual car, thanks to all the high tech drivers now have at their disposal.
But you can invest in the likes of locking wheel nuts, which can make it a bit harder for people to make off with your precious new alloys. That said, tools are now available that can be used to remove these wheel

It’s definitely true that you get more modified cars in some areas than others - and now if you’re into that kind of motor, with its genuine alloy wheels, big spoilers and tinted windows, you may want to visit certain parts of the UK to see how others have pimped their rides.
The Sun recently highlighted the top ten towns in the UK for boy racer-style modified cars, with the small town of Lighthorne in Warwickshire taking the number one spot in the list of places to see modified motors.
Using data from Euro Car Parts, the newspaper came up with the list based on the number of modifying parts purchased compared to the local population.
In at number two was Bangor in North Wales, while Truro, Bridgewater and Greater Manchester’s Sale made up th
