26 Dec 4 Keys To Detailing Custom Car Wheels

Detailing custom wheels is easier said than done. The coatings easily stain, the paint easily flakes, the details can take a ridicules amount of time and so on. After you’ve detailed a set of custom 3-piece rims, any factory car wheel, no matter how dirty, is a cake walk. So what are our 4 Keys To Detailing Custom Car Wheels you ask?

  • 1. The Proper Chemical: use a wheel cleaner that is safe. No acid-based wheel cleaners, no harsh degreasers or pretty much any other wheel cleaner you will get at the local store. You always want to use the least severe means because custom car wheels will often stain or bleach very easily.

  • 2. The Proper Tools: make sure you are using very soft car detailing brushes. For some reason most custom rims, even the most expensive aftermarket wheels, easily scratch, chip and flake. Make sure your detailing brushes aren’t scratching the coating.
Second Step For Benz Wheel Detailing
  • 3. The Proper Technique: make sure you are gentle. As mentioned above, aftermarket rims just don’t have the quality build that factor car rims do. Be gentle.

  • 4. The Proper Patience: as you can see below, these custom pieces of aluminium that are strapped onto the four corners of your car are extremely detailed. They can take forever to get all of the little nuts and bolts. Being patient is absolutely essential when it comes to detailing custom car wheels.
