How to wash your rims properly? With Professional Rim Products !  

Your car's rims play a vital role in the overall aesthetics of the vehicle. However, with the stresses of the road and changing weather conditions, rims can quickly accumulate dirt, brake pad residue and ferrous particles. In order to protect and maintain your rims, the use of specialized products is essential. In this article, we'll explore essential tips for protecting your rims, as well as quality products specifically designed for this purpose.

Tips for Protecting Your Rims: 

  1. Clean regularly: 

Regular maintenance is the key to preserving the appearance of your rims. Clean them at least once a month to prevent the build-up of corrosive dirt.

Corrosive dirt that can accumulate on rims comes from a variety of sources, mostly related to the daily use of your vehicle. One of the main sources of ferrous particles comes from brake pads. When using the brakes, small pieces of metal from the pads can be released and attach to the rims. These ferrous particles can oxidize and cause damage to the surface of the rims.

While driving, your car is also exposed to road dust, which can contain abrasive particles, mineral debris, and residue from other vehicles. These elements can accumulate on the rims and contribute to wear and corrosion.

By combining these factors, it becomes apparent that rims are constantly exposed to potentially corrosive elements. That's why regular maintenance with cleaning products specifically formulated for rims is essential to protect and preserve their aesthetic appearance, while extending their lifespan.

  1. Avoid Abrasive Products: 

Using harsh cleaners or abrasive tools can damage the finish of your rims. Instead, opt for products that are specially formulated for rims.

Candicar products are specially designed for rims. Even though they are extremely effective, the products are harmless to the treated surfaces.

  1. Protect Against Weather: 

Bad weather, especially road salt in the winter, can cause long-term damage. Proper weather protection for rims is crucial to prevent corrosion, maintain their original shine and extend their life.

Candicar advises you to clean your rims regularly. Frequent maintenance is essential to remove accumulated dirt, brake pad residue, and other contaminants. Use a cleaner specifically designed for rims, such as our "Rim Cleaner", to ensure effective cleaning without damaging the surface.

Products such as our Iron Burn also allow you to deep clean and remove rust that has set in gradually.

We also advise you to avoid automatic abrasive washing. Some automatic washing systems use strong chemicals and abrasive brushes that can damage the finish of the rims. Opt for manual washing.

  1. Use Quality Products: 

Invest in products designed specifically for rim cleaning and protection. Three Candicar products stand out in this category.
