As we prepare for the clocks to change and the days to get shorter and the more miserable weather to set in, it’s also important to prepare your car and wheels for the threats seasonal changes bring. JS Bodyworx have the lowdown on what you need to consider to prepare your wheels for winter.
In order to stay safe when the roads are icy, the roads are salted in order to aid the prevention of accidents when frost and snow hits. The problem with gritted roads is that salt is damaging to alloy wheels and results in galvanic corrosion. Such corrosion arises quickly once salt finds its way into stone chips, cracks and kerb damage.
It is possible to protect your alloy wheels with a little maintenance before winter sets in. To ensure your wheels are protected clean them thoroughly and follow up by using an appropriate wheel sealant to add protection. Throughout winter remember to clean your alloys regularly with a gentle wheel cleaner, and ensure no salt or brake dust remains on your wheels.
In the eventuality that your wheels are damaged by the elements or otherwise it’s worth considering alloy wheel refurbishment. Such repairs are a lot more cost effective than having to replace a set of alloy wheels.
