Taking Care of your Wire Wheels

Here at Roadster Wire Wheels, we take great pride in producing the best quality wire wheels on the market, but they will require maintenance from time to time. Rust is steel’s biggest enemy, so it’s a good idea to take the necessary steps in preventing it all together. Here’s how it’s done:

  • Rinse your wheels with water to remove brake dust and road grime.
  • Wash the wheels thoroughly with a mild soap and a non-nylon brush to get rid of the remaining dirt.
  • Rinse the wheel a second time, making sure to wash away all soap residue.
  • Dry the wheel as good as you can with a very soft cotton cloth. To make sure all of the water is slung out of the nipples and spokes, drive the car a short distance (around the block).
  • Use silicone spray, or WD-40 on the nipple threads to prevent rust.
  • Do not use any abrasive cloths or polishes, as this may scratch the chrome-plated surface.
