    Default Well i've sorted my wheels out!!

    Well as many of you seen at the last meet my wheels were in a sorry state after getting a beating throughout the winter ie they looked yellow so i've spent the last 5 hours taking them off and giving them a good seeing to (No sarky remarks please )

    Every wheel got the following!

    1. Washed with fairy liquid
    2. Good scrub with t-cut
    3. Washed again
    4. Dried off
    5. Waxed

    So heres how they looked before


    Here they are now!:mrgreen: and i gave the car a wash while i was there but its still needing clayed and waxed too but the rain came on and put a hault on my efforts!!

    Excellent job. When you say you waxed them, what did you use? What does the wax do to the alloys, i know it helps protect the paintwork on your car so do i assume it protects the alloy?

    Thanks for all the comments folks!!

    All the wax does mate is exactly the same as it does for your bodywork it protects them from the build up of dirt you usually get and it makes them much easier to clean because of the wax! If you look at the 3rd piccy down it was pi55ing it down with rain when i was taking that piccy and you'll see the way the water is beading rather than being all over the wheel if you know what i mean, thats the same way your bodywork goes when its just been waxed so its just more protection and looks great when there done
