The Best Way to Clean Aluminum Wheels


You should clean the aluminum wheels before you wash your vehicle. Cleaning the aluminum wheels prior to cleaning the vehicle will prevent dirty water and dust from dirtying your clean car. 


Here are the steps you should follow to clean aluminum wheels.


  1. You need to start by rinsing the aluminum wheels with only water. This will remove any loose dust and dirt on the wheels. You will want to use a nozzle to create a powerful stream of water. Rinse all the crevices of a wheel, including the spokes and the brake calipers.
  2. You should then use an aluminum wheel cleaner to spray the wheels. The cleaner should be non-acidic. A non-acidic cleaner will clean the wheel effectively without spotting. Do not use chemicals such as oven cleaner or a stainless steel cleaner. 
  3. Then, use a wheel brush with soft bristles to clean the wheel. Don't use a brush with hard bristles to clean the wheel. Hard bristles will likely scratch the aluminum and you will need to work hard to get rid of the scratches by polishing. The soft bristles of a brush will loosen the dirt and grime without leaving scratches on the wheel finish.
  4. Be sure to completely dry the wheels. Water spots on wheels are unattractive. Use a microfiber towel to preserve the wheel finish and to remove loose brake dust. Ideally, you should use a black towel so that you can clean the aluminum wheels without ruining the towel. Use a different towel for drying your vehicle because you don't want brake dust on your car's paint.
