Basic Car Maintenance: Taking Proper Care of Your Wheels

American Racing AR910 wheels

With that in mind, we've just introduced American Racing AR910 wheels in PVD and Gloss Black Machined finishes to our inventory. These outstanding products offer durability and style, plus a number of sizing options to suit your needs. However, when you make an investment by purchasing quality wheels like these for your vehicle, you want to get the most out of them – and that means keeping them in good shape for as long as possible. Here are some tips for keeping your wheels in great working order:

Know What Wheels are Suitable for Your Vehicle

While opting for nicer wheels is appealing, not every type of wheel is suited to your vehicle or driving habits. In addition to getting wheels that fit your car, the driving conditions in your area also impact the types that are best. For instance, if your region experiences heavy and frequent snow, sleet and/or rain, you will want wheels that are designed to handle these weather conditions and that are more resistant to rust. However, if you live in a warmer, drier climate this will not be such an issue.

Clean Your Wheels Regularly

When it comes to caring for any automotive wheels, cleaning them regularly is a must. This helps remove contaminants, debris, and brake dust. If you live in an area where the winter can be harsh and salt and other chemicals are frequently used to allow for safe driving on the roads, then regular cleaning is even more crucial. Be mindful of the products you use and ensure that they are safe for the finish of your wheels. Avoid harsh or abrasive cleaners.

Always Make Sure Your Wheels are Aligned

It's rather easy to tell if your wheels aren't aligned. If your car tends to drift to one side and you have to turn the steering wheel away in order to drive straight, then your wheels aren't aligned properly. This can often happen after hitting the curb or a pothole, but should be fixed when you get the chance. Improper alignment can make driving more difficult and even unsafe.

Protect Your Wheels

In order to keep your wheels looking new, you need to ensure they are always protected. Stay away from car washes that use strong brake dust cleaner, since this can dull the finish. There are products that are designed specifically for wheels, so be sure to use those and avoid the ones that will ultimately lead to earlier replacement.
