How to clean wheels and tires

 

How to clean wheels and tires has a few set standards with unlimited variations because they are undoubtedly the dirtiest part of a vehicle.
Though whether to wash them first or last is a matter of preference.
Here are 3 great reasons why you should do it first.

 

 

1. IT’S LIKELY YOU’LL GET WATER SPOTS OR MUST RE-DRY THE BODY OF THE VEHICLE.

Let’s say you’ve washed the body of the car and are moving onto the wheels. Cleaning wheels take some time, so it’s quite probable you won’t finish before the water dries into streaks and spots.

Alternatively, you washed AND dried the body of the car and move onto the wheels. Unless you’re very careful, you’ll end up splashing water onto your freshly dried detail and will have to dry it again.

Both scenarios lead to more work and overall inefficiency.

2. RISK SPLASHING DIRT, BRAKE DUST, AND HARSHER CHEMICALS ONTO YOUR JUST CLEANED PAINT.

Keeping in line with the previous situation, not only do you risk splashing water onto your cleaned paint, but residue from the wheels as well. If sprayed onto the car body, dirt, brake dust, and harsh chemicals would reintroduce harmful contaminants to the paint and must again be washed away. Once the wheels are clean, you can concentrate on the rest of the car without worrying about dragging dirt from the wheels onto the body.

3. GET THE HARDEST PART OUT OF THE WAY!

Wheels and tires are the dirtiest and require the most work from an exterior detail. Why not start with them and have your detail get easier from there? Washing them first makes the overall process more efficient. It allows you to tackle the dirtiest part of the car when your cleaning tools and enthusiasm are at their peak.
