Detail Your Wheels to Make Them Shine Like New!

It's important to keep your wheels clean! If you allow brake dust to accumulate, it can eat into the coating (if there is one) and pit the metal. Brake dust is a combination of carbon fibers that come off the brake pad and metal shavings from the rotor. The intense heat and friction generated by the wheels makes this mixture very corrosive. Cleaning your wheels frequently is the only way to keep them safe.

Start with Shurhold's Serious Multipurpose Cleaner, or SMC for short. It's a powerful cleaner that contains no bleach, so it's safe on sensitive surfaces. That doesn't stop it from being tough on road grime! Spray the wheel liberally to start cutting the break dust and start cleaning with a microfiber towel. Continue to lubricate with SMC as necessary. Once the break dust has been removed, it's time to detail the wheel to really make it shine.

Grab your Serious Shine. It's an aerosol cleaner that will polish the wheel to a deep shine while leaving a film of protection. It's not a replacement for wax, but it will help prevent the break dust from coming back too quickly. Simply spray on the Serious Shine and buff clean with another clean microfiber towel.  That should eliminate streaks and leave the wheel shining like new.

And there you have it! Another Clean-N-Simple Tip from Shurhold.
