Basic Informative Data About Alloy Wheels

Aluminium Fuchs wheels are quite easy to maintain provided they are prepped well by polishing them. However, the process works well for the untreated alloy wheels Brampton Mississauga, and not for the wheels that are chromed or having another coating on them, in which case the process fails to work.

The process can be done on three kinds of wheels. These are:

Those in good shape Wheels with some minor scuffs and paint chips on them Wheels with major scratch in them.  The good shape wheels are quite easy to work on. The tools required include soft rags, polishing compound, soft rags and Mothers Wheel Polish. Take a rag dipped into water, and wring out the water as much as could be possible, and with a little polishing compound enough to cover the tips of two fingers on the rag, and start on a flat part of the wheel. Make a circular motion of the rag, but do not press hard on it. Keep on the work in the same area till the compound starts to disappear. This will remove the surface grit off the particular part of the wheel. Now with another rag, wipe off the area that will remove any dirt present on the wheel surface. Continue doing this with the rest of the wheel. Now put some Mothers on a fresh rag and go through the same circular motion as you put pressure on the rag, as the rag is turned black. Keep the rubbing process going as some more Mothers are used as required. Use the same technique on the wheel using the same circular motion that will help to take off the oxidation on the wheel, thus making the rag turn black. Keep refreshing the rag with Mothers as and when required and complete the rubbing process. Now take another rag to wipe down the wheel. You should put more pressure while rubbing to get back the gleam on the wheel. Once a month, by rubbing Mothers onto the wheel, you will definitely get the result, with the shine getting amplified with each rub. If there are some scratches in the aluminum, it would do well to get it serviced by a professional as is done for tires in Toronto. However you too could do it yourself, provided you have a strong constitution. To go ahead, take 1500 grit sandpaper and dip in water to wet it down. The same technique is used as color sanding for aluminum surface instead of paint. Before starting, keep the water nearby as there are often the need of dunking the sandpaper into water. By an even motion, use the sandpaper onto the area that is scratched, as well as the surrounding surface.  Go to this website: tires and rims Kent

You can get some special rubber pads that are available at automotive stores that evenly sand the surface and go well with the technique. You should be careful about not pressing hard on the surface as there are possibilities of more scratches happening. Once the scratched surface feels smooth as the surrounding areas, use wet 2000 grit sandpaper on the area you were working on. Follow the same motion as done with the 1500 grit paper. The water on the sandpaper acts to lessen the friction of the paper as the miniscule layers of materials are removed without any scratching of the surface. Once satisfied with the removal of scratch, follow the steps as used in the wheels polish above. It needs mentioning here that if you are not comfortable using the process, it would do well to take the vehicle to a professional. For wheels that have some paint chips/scratches on them, buy some Satin Black aerosol paint and masking tape. Carefully mask off the areas where the paints have chipped off or there are scratches on them. Do not use newspaper, as there are possibilities of the paint being absorbed in the newspaper and leaving blotches or bleed on the surface of the aluminum. Check to see how even the masking lines are on the surface. The best way to go about painting the wheel is to keep it a little elevated so that there more flow of the paint. During the painting of wheels, put thin layers of paint at a time. This will reduce the chances of legs (runs) developing on the paint. Once the painting is completely dried off, remove the masking tape. The tape should be removed slowly, especially during its removal from the painted edges.
