    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.

  2. Alloy Wheel Maintenance 101: Tips and Tricks for Keeping Your Rims Looking Like New

    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.
