    Default hand car wash!!!!!

    went to a newly opened hand car wash today and most of them were english ha Lol they did a great job cleaning it , i just felt lazy thats why took it there. only to notice after before i got in to drive away all the wheel nut covers had turned white, they quickly took them off to clean them in soapy water to no avail, they said they used very strong not diluted T,F,R, ON THE WHEELS, TOLD HIM IF WHEELS START BUBBLING THEN IT WOULD COST THEM A LOT OF DOSH, they gave me money back to buy new covers but i just hope the wheels are ok???Attachment 17221

    i dont think it will do anything to the wheels if theyre new maybe if the lacquer was peeling already and it got underneath but my friend said he used to take all the nut covers off and the centre caps when he cleaned his wheels with any chemical cleaner.

    i only use soapy water these days as i had £1,350 chrome wheels on my old calibra and that spray on cleaner crap started to take the laquer off

    that very cherry stuff is suppost to be very good stuff
