The wheels are the boots of a car. When you consider the state of your boots after you’ve been out somewhere, it’s no surprise that the wheel will look the same. Mud, grit, rock salt and the edges of kerbs lie in wait to scuff, scratch and stain the alloys. All of this will dull the appearance of them considerably. Therefore if you wash nothing else on the car, make sure you wash the wheels at least once a week.

There is a lot to be said for waxing a car. Once the vehicle is washed and a wax coat applied, it helps to repel and rebound water and foreign objects. Alloy wheels are no different; in fact, there are specialist waxes that you can get for them that will extend their lifetime by quite a bit.
